      Nothing I can think of.

      Hmmmm! Change the zinc's.

      Zinc or aluminum for salt water: If you are a saltwater boater, you should install zinc anodes to prevent galvanic corrosion on the engine and underwater parts of your boat. Look for aluminum anodes as a possible replacement because they last longer while providing the same level protection as zinc.

      Magnesium for fresh water: Since freshwater is much less conductive than saltwater, magnesium anodes are the best choice because they're more active (less noble) than zinc or aluminum so they will protect your engine parts much more effectively. Caution: do not use magnesium anodes in any other than a freshwater application because they corrode rapidly, exposing your boat and engine to possible damage.
