Soundings: Real Boats, Real Boaters;May2014, Vol. 51 Issue 9, p56
The article offers information on the usage of zinc and aluminum alloys as anodes in salt water to generate more negative voltage than the protected metals in order to protect corrosion and mentions that difference in voltage measured must be greater than protected metal.
