You'll typically want magnesium anodes. Nice boat! I'd bet a buck its the only Silver Streak out there on the USA side of the border

Navalloy anodes may be an option.


Navalloy is more active than zinc so it gives better protection
Navalloy anodes last up to 30% longer than zinc anodes
Navalloy anodes self-clean in freshwater
Zinc anodes form a coating that stops them working within a few months
Navalloy anodes are recommended for both salt and freshwater on Mercury sterndrives
Navalloy anodes are environmentally friendly
Navalloy anodes will reactivate after exposure to the atmosphere
You should not mix different types of anodes on the same bonding system
Do not use magnesium anodes in salt or brackish water - they will over-protect aluminum outdrives or hulls
