A properly applied coating (rugged paint) in combination with anodes is going to do you right. Like mentioned, the only areas of the boat that are going to rust/corrode are the areas where bare metal is in contact with the elements. A good coating takes care of most of that, but there will always be defects in the application of the coating and the anode protects those exposed areas only, the less you have, the more efficiently the anodes work and the longer life they have.

You will still have exposure to atmospheric corrosion, which can really only be managed by a good coating.
