Are you sure the hull was properly prepared for the two pack coat? I would initially suspect possible adhesion problems caused by bitumen left on the hull. M G Duff have an anode selector on their site for you to play with. As you say the anodes had completely dissolved I wonder if you have shore-power aboard but much depends upon how long the anodes were on there and what water you are floating in. Tony Brooks
