Yamaha stern drive question

On the transom plate at the bottom (outside the boat) there's 3 earth cables.

One goes to each trim ram, where does the third go anyone?

yep, the other one goes on the 10mm bolt on the cover for the trim indicator or tilt stop whichever is on that side

Thanks Biff, I'll have another look in the morning.

I was fairly convinced it would go to the transom anode, to electrically connect it to the main components of the leg.
