Yamaha Outboard Anode Bracket
At the weekend a section of the outbaord came loose so I removed it and continued using the boat. I have identified the part as the Anode Bracket, it had been left hanging by a wire connection, which i think was acting as a safety measure to stop the bracket damaging the prop (and this worked)
I intend to get a new bracket, bolts and wire but my question is can i use the boat and engine before the new parts arrive and get fitted? It appears to be a 'cover plate' so it does not affect the engine fixings, am I correct here?
