uf there is an electrolysis problem it will demolish anodizing as well. I have had it happen to me several times in the past and have always had anodizing instead of PCI would clean real well and then add a grounding strap to each side as stated to keep the anodes working on all, then if that cures the issue next fall strip the rear and recoat all. It’s definitely more common with powdercoat than anodizing, but it’s mostly in the prep. If that is a direct from Eddie color i would honestly look to them and see what they say, they could’ve had a bad batch of powder or possibly no idea about it but just may help you out a little on the recoat. I do know that MIW charges basically 50% to strip and recoat a product. So if steps are 500$ new it’ll be 250$ for the strip and coat, but it is an entailed process, strip polish then recoat.
That all said it being an outboard I’d have a hard time believing the problem is with the boat. I’d bet it’s with where it was parked for some amount of time.
Just clean it off and see what happens next.
