The hull being more reactive, behaves like a sacrificial anode. Hence, sacrificial anodes are placed to protect the hull from corrosion. A fully loaded gearless bulk carrier runs aground on a rock(Fwd portside) at high tide. Range of tide is 4 metres and the next low water is in 5 hours. No damage to the hull. Actions as chief mate.
