what does this pipe do

Tohatsu 90TLDI, there is a rubber pipe running from the engine, down the outside of the leg case and then goes into the gearbox at the bottom. I guess it's got something to do with air? My tilt/trim mechanism managed to mangle it !

What does it do?

Same happened to me. I just blanked it off. Never caused any problems.

Its a pretty stupid flimsy thing to have in that area of an engine.
