    Does anybody know if this bracket supports the pump at all? I would like to leave it off so that it looks nice and clean back there.

    It bolts to the pump and to the hull to make it very solid, so I would say Yes. Perhaps since these skis make a lot of power, thus pressure, the only other thing holding the pump unit is the transom plate, which is attached to the SMC hull. I would think that if it flexed enough over a long period of time, it would crack the hull, so I would highly recommend using some sort of bracket. Perhaps you can fabricate something nicer looking.

    Leave that bracket in. You run a high risk of cracking the pump tunnel if you remove it. It has happened to people on this forum.
