Default Some nice new chunks taken out of the skeg...

Forgot to trim it up today when retrieving it at the ramp. .






Can anything be done here? Sand it down maybe? Or some kinda bondo?

Get some merc paint (base and clear). Sand a tad to get rid of the roughness and then paint it. Nobody will even notice it.

Yeah, the paint was like that before today's incident. I guess now would be a good time to re-paint it. Thanks

i don't see anything missing, best way to fix missing chunks is to weld some new aluminum in there if it is only one or two tiny spots you can probably do it without disassembling the drive. you can repaint it but it won't last like the factory finish.

You can't see it from the pic, but right at the bottom its almost like grooves that were taken out. All scratched up and everything.
