I have an 2017 Evinrude G2 300hp outboard. I found the BRP part number (0359580) on the streamlined collar zinc that goes on the crossbar between the two cylinder pistons. On-line searches have not yielded anyone selling it or even a cross reference to the many brands of zinc anodes out there. These streamlined collar zinces come in 1/8 increments in the shaft size. Does anyone know what size that crossbar between the two cylinder pistions is? or does anyone have the proper BRP part number that i can use to order or crossreference to an aftermarket zinc? FYI - i can't just go measure mine because the boat is in winter storage until may 1st. I'm gathering my supplies so i can get back on the water as soon as i get the boat out of storage.

The zinc anode is inexpensive - only around $13.
Yours is new now and will last for quite a while. Why worry about something aftermarket that may or may not be as effective as the OEM version?
Just buy one from your dealer.
