Looks like the shaft seal failed just enough to let a tiny little bit of salty urine poo water into the motor where it got spun around with all of the uncoated metals and electricity.

The bottom line is that "marine" items are seldom made of appropriate marine materials. They really don't care.

Yep ! Bought a freshwater pump from Jabsco . It lasted a month before the electrical terminals rotted.
Jabsco said I shouldn't be using it where there is a chance of condensation and that it's only for use in dry conditions .
You have to laugh.
