Rat, with damage like that I'm guessing you may have bent the prop shaft too-might be worth checking while it's apart.

Wow the prop is just the tip of the iceberg in your damage the answer is yes but the cost would be cheaper to buy another..

One the old cigarettes had #3 houseboat-drives(like a bravo the size of a Volkswagen) and the props were non existent to make a long story short we welded up much worse..

The first 4 blade was if the story is correct a three blade some one welded 4 blades on it

a little duct tape should do it...

i think JC has some he can lend ya.
