      The hull indentation for the large hull annode for the C&N 40ac is
      approximately 3 3/4 X 14 3/4. The last yard had fitted a much smaller
      annode, about 1/2 inch deep. Is the large annode on the 35s the same
      size? Does anyone recall the depth of the ones formerly available from
      C&N, it looks like 3/4 inch would be about flush with the hull, or did
      it extend beyond the hull.

      In trying to get someting to match the hole. I have talked to a firm
      that does annodes for the Navy in Norfolk [Marshall Manufacturing in
      Atlantic, Va.]. They will make a custom mold (about $300). If the size
      is the same for the 35s, is there any interest in splitting the cost for
      the mold -- to create a reliable source. These zinks are cast to U.S.
      Navy specs. If cast at the same time, annodes will be about
      $40.00/each.
