I like the color match to the hull

That part is NOT supposed to come apart. It looks like it tore the wiring off of it too, although you say it works when held together. You can try to put it back together with glue, after repairing the wiring, but make sure that o-ring is under pressure. You should be able to look at the tangs and see if they were previously glued.

If reliability is an issue I would replace it.

thanks Peter, my mate went for a pee off the back of the boat but first slipped his foot into the bilge and hit the pump hence then it fell apart, no sign of glue but think you are right although there is a male and female groove in each part it would seem it would have to be glued and clamped and the odds are against that working, so spending a penny looks like 50 for a new pump !

If I did that to someones boat, I would step up and repair it.

My friend took the helm of my boat when I went to park the trailer and when I came back he was stuck on the rocks. Turned out the prop was toast. Anyhow I had a three blade prop and he showed up with an upgraded four blade prop and asked if I needed help putting it on. I said "Sure", and showed him how to replace a prop. We boated together for many years, even after he became a pro wakeboarder.
