It sounds like you have a bonding problem which may cause you serious issues. I am going to send you a page out of my book which will allow you to test the bonding of the engine to the zincs when in the water.
Every owner should check continuity between the prop and the zincs each time you haul out. Using the resistance setting on a multitester with a long piece of wire to extend one probe to the the prop with the other probe on the zinc, the multitester should read very little to zero resistance...in other words there should be close to 100% continuity.
If there is continuity, you can be assured that your rudder post, prop, C-Drive or shaft, transmission, and engine are protected. Of course, this assumes that everything between your prop and engine are connected metal-to-metal.
