Should the aluminum pads welded to the hull have bare aluminum under the zink anode so that the zink is in direct contact with the hull? The new zinks that I just got from Vetus had a coat of blue paint
on them only on the surface where they make contact with the aluminum pads that are welded to the hull. The Vetus website recommends to have the electrical
connection only through the bolts. But I have removed all the paint
using a wire wheel
from the aluminium pads and under the anodes so that the bare zink is held firmly against the bare aluminium hull. Should I follow the advise of Vetus and paint the bottom of the anodes and the aluminum pads?
