Wow! Quite the impressive science experiment! Stainless steel hanger + zinc plated bolt + marine environment = the serious galvanic corrosion that you see in the photo.
The "Blob" is where the anode metal dissolved into the electrolyte and deposited onto the cathodic metal.

Are these still common, or has it been improved?

A lot of the bad bolts have been removed. Last I heard they would not let them put up new bolts.
