I added two anodes to my rudder post on my H260.
Last season some pitting by the end so added these after looking up the price of the rudders post.A479433E-A43C-421A-85B6-6B06338FB92A.jpeg

Is there shore power in the marina? Is there a boat with a generator running a lot near you. If yes, any shore power chords drooping in the water?

Probably .
Several live aboard boats. Thats what I think is the problem also and why I need extra protection.

I would report the possibility of electrolysis occurring in the water and see if laws require the marina to investigate to see if it is happening in the water around you first and if so, then see if the shore power on the docks is the culprit. IF not check with the other boats around for bad shore power cables in the water cracked and if so replace. Also if gen sets running on board that could be a problem there. You could try putting over sacrificial anodes to see if that is happening in the water by your boat first. Water and electricity do not mix.
