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.
