One of many sacrificial anodes on her hull to reduce corrosion.  Sacrificial anodes works on the principle similar to electrolysis;  if an anode and a metallic strip are dipped in electrolytic solution, anode electron will dissolve and deposit over the metallic strip and make it cathode. In the case of a ship, sea water acts as an electrolyte and transfers the electrons from the anode by oxidizing it over the steel plate and making a protecting layer.
