batteries are removed over the winter storage.

I would have given it the taste test, but after all the comments, could I really post my taste results of bow and stern "spooge" and get a realistic answer?

Only if it's styled as a YouTube foodie review.

This has to be some kind of electrolysis reaction if it is happening on the bow eye tie down. I'm really intrigued as to what is happening here.
If there's no battery in the boat that's connected to the bow eye, cables or other metal, there can be no electrolysis and I have never seen a bow eye that was connected to anything electrical, although it might not be a bad idea to look at the underside of the bow to see if the bow light's wiring is touching it and also, look in the storage compartments for a battery that may have been left in the boat, connected. I doubt it's a galvanic reaction but if the air around the boat is extremely humid, it may be possible.

Was an extension cord left in the boat with the plug still in the outlet? If so, is the insulation missing on any of the wires?

I would be tempted to scrape some of this off and do some testing, or find someone who can do this.

I was kidding about the taste test.

Any livestock in the area of the boat? Maybe one of them got the wrong impression.

Jim, the bow light was the first thing that I thought about. Who knows? Stranger things have happened.

Also, what about the bow eye contacting the boat buddy rod. Is there a short in the trailer some where?

I have a bit of gunk like that where the heater hose the connected. It is some sort of water sealing goop. It doesn't wash away though.
