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?

If it's the strip of stainless along the bottom of the clamp assy held on by a couple of M6 (m8?) hex screws vertically up into the clamp / PT castings, the worst that will happen is you'll get a bit more corrosion on your next outing than you might otherwise have got.

Having said that, for the time it takes an anode to get to the end of it's life, I wouldn't loose any sleep over it. I ordered one for my old 55 and it was fitted 3 days later.

thats the sort of reply I was hoping for, thanks. I won't have to miss a day boating waiting for the part to arrive and get time to fix it.

No worries. Just make sure there are three big (M10/12 kind of size) horizontal screws each side holding the bottom of the clamp together - I am not intimitely familiar with the 100 Gee Gee Yam, and wouldn't want your engine to fall apart on grounds of my advice!

The wire is to ensure electrical conductivity between the anode and the rest of the motor. Though it probably would work to keep the thing out of the prop.

Can anyone suggest a good supplier of yamaha parts that would have an on line catalogue ? I've found a couple but they are in the states and I'd rather speak to someone in the uk when ordering
