We keep our boat on the Southern Broads at St Olaves and she has now been in 2 Years (That is how long we have owned her). I will antifoul her and replace the anodes this year.
I am generally used to salt water and was wondering what Antifoul and what anodes (metal type) people use on the Southern Broads

Only ever look down on people if you are bending over to help them up

'Afternoon, Bigplumbs . . . .

I would opt for aluminium anodes - being better suited for brackish waters.

With regards to a particular anti-foul, there's many an opinion. Why not try a call with one or more of the Southern hire yards, to see what they may recommend as being suitable for your particular needs ?

I can’t help too much with an Antifoul recommendation - I simply continue with that used by the boat’s builder, namely Interspeed 6400 - but I moor upstream of you at Burgh St Peter and was surprised at how brackish the water is even up there. I swapped to magnesium anodes on WRC’s recommendation, don’t regret it, they erode over two or three seasons but not excessively, I reckon they’re doing their job…
