Alternator packed up

This was our second trip to Cowes this year and yes the alternator went open circuit on the way back so no generator, no alternator but fully charged batteries so minimal electrics turned on and the Rutland 913 wind generator keeping it all running at 2 to 3 amps, home stripped it off, found another alternator, larger charging capacity eg 120 amp instead of 90 amps but .... it is not isolated! The man in the rebuild shop said it would increase the wear on the anodes but otherwise no change so having the old unit rebuilt as a spare or do I refit it ?
its been a busy repair year so far
