Defects in the zinc. Although I'm guessing you stored it in the water for awhile? That's not typical wear for a boat on a trailer.

OEM I think. There's no evidence of the engine being stored in the water for a while at all.

it looks fairly typical and not something i would be at all concerned about - some anodes get eaten fairly quickly and exactly the way your phots show

Off topic, but I'd suspect some moose hunter...

Normal wear for an anode is less focused, and more, well, spongelike.

I'd hit up the marina where you had the boat in the water and ask them to check for currents in the water from other boats nearby.

It's never been in a marina and there's no shore power to the pontoons it's been tied up to...

Confusing isn't it!

Hello
How much stainless do you have on your boat? Especially submerged or toching the water?
How often do you change you anodes?
Stainless steel is often a cause for extreme wear on anodes and galvanic corrosion around the motor.

Cumps

Hardly any. There's a stainless disc covering the flooding hull hole,but the damage was there before I put that on and it's not accelerated it.

Has it been chipped by stones when its being towed ??????? OK not really a sensible suggestion , but the first one that came to me ! It COULD be , but probably not......

Not sure how this would affect an anode.
