Source for older Vetus thruster zinc

I need to replace the zinc anode for my Vetus model BSCHR12A 45 Kg thruster. The manual lists part number ZINK02. I've searched on-line but the only one I've found looks nothing like what I have which is a single bolt mount.
Anyone have a source?

No dimensions listed. A $52 zinc might be pretty big.

Here is a link to Camp anodes for Vetus thrusters. You should be able to get a part number. Camp Company :: Bow Thruster Anodes :: Vetus

I guess I'll just order the top one. My model does not even appear in the "old" list!

Sure you found something by now... I have that same unit but my zinc sounds very different...I ran across your post while looking for some troubleshooting tips on this model thruster, mine is unhappy at the moment. The zinc that's on mine is bonded over to the side. Does your go on the end of the prop? I use boatzinc.com CM200 European Bolt-On Zinc Anode – 0.2KG (CM200). Thanks.
