Some PO put those on He/she was convinced they were necessary for some purpose, but time has a way of passing without bringing those predictions to pass.
Take them off. clean them up, use them for conversation starters, paper weights, beer coasters or what have you.
If you wake up in the night regretting taking them off, as you have suddenly discovered their true purpose, put them back on. Report your epiphany here.

To prevent the shaft from backing out. We sure don't want the shaft backing out and hitting the rudder.
A previous own installed on the shaft so he would know where to find it???

If you measure the distance from the "device"to the face of the packing gland, it should be less than the distance from the propeller to the rudder. It is to keep the shaft from sliding back if the coupling fails. This is to keep the prop/shaft from hitting the rudder and causing a steering failure.

I do believe I gave the same reasoning. Also, to take measurements and also said, chances are he will have no problem determining its original place because of the condition under the collar.

Yes, you did. I only gave him a way to verify the reason for the "device".
I apologize if I offended you in any way with my post.

Not offended at all. I just copied it and sent it to my ex-wife to prove once again, I was correct. LOL

I do the same thing to my incumbent wife who claims I can never be correct because I have a penis.

LOL So many ways to respond to that. I will just say, "Hello brother."

In reality, I do not have contact with any of my multiple ex-wives. I'd rather they think I died.

I will compliment them all for getting a better offer than me. You know the deal, 'richer, generous to their wives'.

LOL

All true until the guy says “I do”. All my marriages were great for a couple of weeks.

You know you are in trouble when you say, "I do" and she says "O no you don't."

A loving wife OR g/f is someone who should be cherished. I see so many couples not afraid to express their love for each other in public.

Okay, I'm done.

I can only speak for myself but, I am teasing OR maybe I'm not teasing.

Now, I am really done.

Thanks
The obvious answer is, it's a benign growth, don't pick at it.
Sorry, just had to say it.

Thanks to everyone for your comments. I'll take a few measurements just in case I have that "epiphany" and need to put them back.

Put them back. Even if you never need them, you will know exactly where to find them.
