Default Bravo Two anodes questions

Hello all,

I'm looking to purchase an anode kit for my sterndrive (Bravo Two S/N 0L176091), but I'm encountering an issue. Currently, I have a gimbal anode installed, but I can't find any related part number (only available for Alpha 1).

What does this mean?
Do I have an Alpha 1 gimbal and a Bravo Two sterndrive?

Which anode kit (or separate anodes) should I purchase?

And which anode should I buy for trim tabs?

Many thanks.

That serial number shows up a Bravo although your lower gimbal anode does look like an Alpha. Do you have a belt driven raw water pump on the lower starboard side of your engine? If so it’s a Bravo, if not it’s a Alpha.

Most Bravos I have seen done have the lower transom housing anode but instead have the Mercathode system mounted there.

Thanks Mike
I have Mercathode system, installed inside the kitchen draw, but installed part does not look like Mercathode part.
So, what should I buy to replace?

Here is a kit for the entire system. Compare it to what you have.
