We got these from martyr. They incorporate an anode mount into the nut. Seemed like a good solution to two problems and no anode is required on the shaft with these fitted.

The nut is slotted to allow for the split pin. It is made of bronze and uses a 316 stainless Allen bolt to secure the anode. It wasn't cheap but I think is worth the extra dollars.

Thanks for all the replies and advice.
I have these on my twin screw motor sailor. Last year when pulled for bottom paint I found the port side anode and stainless allen head cap screw missing. I think locktite might have saved it.
