Pins, rings, or wire?

I bought a boat on which the alternator was held on with plastic zip ties. Apparently had been operated that way for years.
Of course, the surveyor wrote that the engine was maintained in top condition. Maybe he knows something I do not.

Sent from an undisclosed location on the high seas or from the lounge chair by the pool, you decide.

To a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
