Abstract

During a two‐week voyage of the S.S. Israel from Haifa to New York, experiments were conducted with a platinum‐clad trailing anode system for cathodic protection. Preparation for the voyage and day‐to‐day working of the experiments are described as are the successful efforts made to overcome the mechanical difficulties that arose. Concrete results that emerge indicate a growing and glowing future for such installations on large ships.
