Galvanic isolator and anodes

Hi guys looking for some help,

I have 2 through hull anodes and a grounding plate fitted to the hull. There is a galvanic isolator in the boat. I was told that the anodes need to be connected to the negative battery terminal which I'd like to do. There are two earth wires that run from one anode to the galvanic isolator..

If I connected a wire from this anode to the battery negative would it affect the galvanic isolator?

Thanks !!

Re: Galvanic isolator and anodes

through hull anodes? that could be a active system. which is wired totally different

but if not. then the AC, DC, and bonding system is all joined together at a single common spot.
