Galvanic corrosion from nearby boats?

I am docked near a large motor trawler that seems to run more powered devices then an aircraft carrier. I am not connected to shore power and rely on my solar panels for power. I have a prop shaft zinc and would say I am about 4 feet or so from the trawler in my slip. Can his massive consumption of shorepower increase galvanic corrosion on my prop etc? Am contemplating moving just cause motor trawlers are so ugly to begin with but this would add urgency to the idea...
