Matt...more is better...as one of the other posters said, you can also hang a zinc "fish" from a backstay to allow you to monitor the "sacrifice". The electrical problems may NOT be comming from your boat as we have noticed vastly different rates of zinc attrition in different marinas where other boat's and the marina's electrical system may contribute to th problem. Check with other owner's nearby to see if they have the same problem.
