50 Etec Making Clanky Noise at Low RPM with video link

Hi there,

New to E-nation and hoping for some friendly advice!

I just got my little boat in the water for the first time this season and heard this unpleasant sound from it for the very first time. It's most obvious at 2 to 3 K RPM and it's also the first time I've had it run since having it's 1st 3 year maintenance done. Anyone have an idea what is causing this clanky sound? My local service is backed up for weeks and I was wondering if it may still be safe to run motor in the meantime? I'll provide a Google link to a video that shows the sound quite well. Either click link or copy and paste to see video,
it's only a minute long. Hoping for some insight!

Not sure if important, but I did remove my prop before running engine. I've done this before and all is secure and not loose.
