Default whats the best way to repair skegs?

What do you do do to fix skegs that are broken off? Is this common? Will it affect the steering?

Any good marine repair shop can weld you up a new one.

I bought replacement skegs from BAM approx 5 yrs ago. They are skegs that have just been cut off new drives right below the torpedo. I assume damaged drives. They make for gret replacement skegs since they are already the correct shape. I think they were $20 then. Mine was just damaged on the leading edge on 1 drive, and the bottom of the other, so I cut the replacement skegs to only that amount. Try to keep from welding any closer than needed. The heat can ruin your o rings in the prop shaft carrier. Put the carrier back in it if you do weld up high to help keep the torpedo from getting distorted from the heat.
Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
