No doubt that you could drill another hole through the new zinc to acquire the same bolt pattern as the original zinc. This stuff can be agrivating, can't it? That's a problem with mail order, often times not all the information is available online. However West Marine does have an available technical staff. It's your opinion here as to drill another hole you are wasting zinc, but to send the new zinc back to West Marine you will probably pay way more in postage than the zinc that you waste that will be drilled out of the anode to secure a proper attachment.
Defender is a good company but they can also be agrivating at times. I have sucessfully used one mail order company against another to obtain lower prices on major items, but that takes perserveance and patience, but can save major boat bucks.
