  I first saw these two skin fittings suffering the early effects of electrolysis and dezincification while this vessel was hauled out for maintenance.  I advised the owner to replace them however he decided it was not important nor urgent.
  Three months later he happened to slip the vessel to do another job and this is all that remained of the fittings.  In my estimation these skin fittings were within days or possibly hours of failing completely.

  This propeller blade is suffering from the effects of cavitation, (note the heavy pitting at the root of the blade).  Analysing the cause(s) of cavitation is not always straight forward, as it is a complex issue.
