Default Anode Question

Hi folks,
I have a question for my own education. Can Anodes be changed in the water?? I can get to my drive, plus I am a scuba diver. If I wanted to change the anodes out while the boat is in the slip, is that ok? Is there any reason why that wouldn't be ok?

Does the connection need to be dry when it is bolted together??

Thanks!!

Yes this can be performed in the water. Common on large boats to have a diver change them.

Just do not drop anything

Thanks, mike. That makes sense. I wound have thought so, but I had never seen it in writing.

Absolutely can be done. If you're in salt water, I would use combo wrenches and nut drivers. I wouldn't use socket drivers in saltwater. Whatever tools you use, I would rinse them in freshwater then use something like wd40 or Ballistol to displace water and oil the tools to prevent corrosion.

I haul my boat mid-season to powerwash the hull, change the zinc's and make sure the pickups are cleaned out. I slip in a area which gets a good deal of growth, even though I run the boat every weekend.
