Opinions on My Anode Location Plans Please

Here is some ideas and sketches as I'm working on completing the anode set-up for my project houseboat. The boat is all aluminum (Marinette) which will likely be in fresh water, but may also cruise the brackish water of the St. John's River. I am going with aluminum plate anodes which will bolt right on to the backing plate (with the 4 studs.) I appreciate any criticisms and opinions good or bad, I need to try and do this right the first time.
Thanks a lot... Enjoy: Anode system renderings and images pictures by projecthouseboat - Photobucket

Re: Opinions on my anode location plans please.

Dont use Zinc use Magnesium anodes that are intended for aluminium boats. Cheers Frank
