    What is this?

    I am Talking about the gray piece on top of the ride plate on the right side at the rear. Looks almost like a spacer of some sort. Should there be one on the left as well? Sorry I dont have photoshop on this one to draw an arrow to it.

    My guess is a sacrificial zinc anode...meant to attract the corrosion from electrolysis. A 'must have' on water craft, especially in a salt environment.

    Make sure that it is making good contact with the ride plate...and when it is about half 'gone', replace it!

    Just one on the right side, nothing on the other.
