    Smile Re: Repairing/Replacing skegs on Bravos???


    If you are still in need of repair, we do repair them here. We fix leading edge damage as needed or replace the entire skeg when it makes more sense. We replace the skeg with Mercury factory replacements.

    Granted, shipping the units would also come into play. I thought I would give you another option. More than likely you can find some shop locally who can perform the quality work it requires. Call the shops around your area and ask them questions.

    If you have any questions, please call us.

    Another shop swears 20 years of replacing 1,000's of skegs with no failures. A complete replacement would look much better but I can't risk failure at speed.

    Maybe yours was diferent. You have twins and more power, I had a single BBC Bravo. It felt like more cavitation and less speed for me. BBB
