Zinc Loss

My 1989 Morgan sloop is suddenly going through zincs at an alarming rate. I always put 2 on the shaft in case I throw one. I have had to replace them on a bi-monthly basis. I need to locate cause. Any ideas?

Ed, it looks like it didn't want you to say sea c-o-c-k-s.

If you boat is in a marina it might be someone else's problem that you are paying for.
