Not sure about the "wonderful" bit.

I couldn't agree more, stick with your proven spade. You may want to try the rattle can zinc. I used some on my old anchor and chain and it held up very well. I was pleasantly surprised. My concerns were rust stains on deck, the rattle can stopped them for several months before I hit it again.

HA! So am I. Got my P.E., and all that. Made a decent living at it. We don't meet many of us walking around in the real world (much less on a boating forum). Maybe we will meet up someday and have time for a conversation...........(and drive the girls to drinkin').

Take care.

Hi,

I've been using the cold galvanizing spray paint but it abrades off very readily; even with more meticulous surface preparation prior to spraying it on.

I think the galvanizing torch & stick method will be my next attempt.

Why not give painting on Galvafroid or similar with a brush and see how that lasts. You`ll get a thicker coating and can do multiple coats. Of course, if there is no adhesion it won`t matter how much you get on,but worth a try imo.

I got out to the boat & took some pictures...

This is the anchor after using cold galvanizing spray & one trip with ~ 4 anchor sets.

It's mostly cosmetic but I'm not keen to have to keep spraying the anchor to stay on top of it...

I’ve used a lot of Rustoelum cold gal on many of my anchor testing and modifications. Works fairly well.

Anchor chain living it’s life in a chain locker may typically have a oil film on most surfaces. Idea ... get a 5 gal bucket half full w solvent and see-saw the chain up and down for every 2 feet or so of chain.

Has anybody used the industrial “high solids” primer coating?
