Re: Zinc,...where does it go?

And for those who do not brine their boats like a thanksgiving turkey (such as in fresh water), magnesium is used rather than zinc. Because
magnesium has the more negative electropotential and is more suitable for areas where the electrolyte (soil or water) resistivity is higher.
