Too many zincs & bording gate hinge

Good Morning All.**** Just came off the hard after a bottom paint and an old salt passed by to express his opinion* that I had too many zincs on my boat thus being over-protected.** His thinking being that Taiwanese Stainless Steel is known for it's low quality and therefore is less noble than "good"* Stainless, so over zincing can reverse the flow and the stainless steel actualy becomes the anode and erodes...Anyone heard of such a thing or has this old boy been out in the sun too long ??***** I am also looking for a source for a new hinge for the boarding gate.* Thats the gate in the wooden rail about amidships on each side, can't find them in the regular supply catalogs.
