Gene80, if you're burning through zincs read up on what to check on your boat. There's plenty written on it so finding instructions shouldn't be hard. Or find a qualified marine electrician to investigate if you're unfamiliar with electricity. Also keep in mind to shut off shore power in the surrounding area before you dive. An electrical leak, likely to cause rapid zinc wear, could also be deadly to you or anyone swimming near the electrical leak. Remember you have at least 110VAC with 30 and/or 50 amp service on the power posts at your slip. Finding a nice quiet anchorage to don the gear and scrub the bottom would be my choice.
