Zinc Or Aluminum Anodes On Mid Chessie

As I was about to order a prop anode for our boat I saw 3 choices, zinc, aluminum and magneseum. I know mag is strictly fresh, I've always used zinc and never gave it a second thought but in reading up on it I see aluminum alloy is recomended for brackish water which is what the mid Chessie is. Now I'm thinking on ordering the prop anode in aluminum as well as replacing the shaft zincs with aluminum as well. So now it's time to dip into the wealth of knowledge here and ask for input and experience. Any thoughts?
