I suspect this will come loose again as i use the boat so wondering if this connection piece can be repaired/replaced.
Sadly I have been through the same issue with my '99 PS 205 LTR-330. A search reveals the fuel pump harness is a common failure on our year boats, more specifically for me, the yellow connector from the harness to the top of the fuel pump assembly. Over time it seems to either corrode or wear such that the connectors no longer make contact. I made my own temporary harness from pieces at a local electronics store to get me back on the water quickly, but you can buy these harnesses online still. In the end, I restored the old harness by cleaning all the connections, crimping the female side of the pins, and re-routing the harness to allow more slack and less pressure on the plug. Been fine for about 50 hours so far.

If your clip is broken take it to a specialist store and get them to match it, then solder onto the existing harness - naturally, you will remove the harness before doing hot work above the fuel tank... and will also double up the heat shrink to be sure to be sure...
