Thanks Dave, the Engine was fully serviced by the previous owner in May 14, would they have changed them then do you think?

Marc,
depends on how long you stay in the water. If you can raise your engines out of the water while on the mooring they will last longer. The guys that carry out your services will monitor them. I have an inboard engine and fined they need changing annually. I don't know how often the other guys on the forum change theirs but I have found mooring in brackish water causes greater corrosion on shaft anode compared with main engine anode. Both anodes are the same make.

After a power wash off I rub down with acetone and it refreshes the surface in october and I antifoul once a year around mid may so it freshest over the summer.

Yes, I'm on the Beaulieu as well and the fouling has been a nightmare this year.

I have my anodes replaced every year at the same time as servicing and anti-fouling. Although, I try and stretch it to just over the 12 months each time!

I think its an inspect and check situation.
I check my engine anodes every 4 - 6 weeks.
I replace them when more than 50% worn (Majority of engine manufacturer and anode manufacture recommendations)

Rather than lift the boat to examine the prop anode I have an underwater camera I tape onto a broom handle and inspect that way.

If you don't have an underwater camera, you can take a quick dip with a mask and have a quick look..... like I did last April in Langstone to change the prop anode !
