Highfield RIB 640 zincs

My husband and I just boughta 2017 Highfield aluminum hulled rib. The surveyor noted no hull mounted zincs, although I did spot one behind the motor mount. Are there more places that should have zincs? I've never owned an aluminum boat before.

Hopefully a highfield owner will be along shortly to confirm what they have on theirs. If it were me I would be going back to the surveyor and asking them (especially since they missed one). Iíd probably also call your nearest highfield dealer as even if you know whatís needed you then need to work out how to fit them without damaging the hull.

Is it painted or bare Aluminium?
Are you planning to use or salt or fresh water?
