Try BBMS Swanwick 01489 580250
Genuine Quicksilver kit £ 42.88
After market kit £ 38.00
all plus vat but boatmadders get 10 % off.

Both kits are alluminium anodes not to be confused with copy Zinc that cause more corrosion than they save.

The faster they erode the better!!
also the proper ones will be zinc, i wouldn't get aluminium ones as they are supposed to be sacrificial meaning they will rust instead of your engine!, Zinc is more reactive then aluminium so is more likely to save your engine.
also the aftermarket aluminium anode would not really be much good because the leg/gearbox is made of aluminium so the anode wouldn't be sacrificial, no more then your leg/gearbox is!

try www.mercruiserparts.com thats where i get all the stuff for our engine. fast and cheap
