Going today, prop out of balance for sure, hopefully not the shaft.

Might as well drop the lower unit and check everything. Have seen the main shaft bend also. Have seen some just chip off a pinion gear tooth shortly after an impact. Hope you have insurance. I would replace the complete lower unit. Two Guys may have one.

Hope it’s not a torquemaster, those suckers are expensive.

No.

That skeg is the only control you have on a boat at speed. It's not made to replace the skeg, only guard one.
I would at a minimum replace the case.

That is a RH 1.75 Torquemaster $5600.00.

Here’s the sticker on my service master. I have no clue how to decipher them. These are half the price of the torquemaster.

Good call. Make sure that they replace with a Torquemaster. Insurance companies will try anything to save a buck.
