Has anyone seen a shaft strut with this appearance? Looks to be galvanic corrosion, I plan to grind it for a better look, check the inside, and check bonding (I've had the boat 15 years and it appears to be bonded but never checked where this meets the hull from the inside). Any idea where to purchase a replacement?

I have heard the shaft strut is no longer available unless you can find one off of a boat being parted out.
