Has anyone had a skeg repaired from having pieces broken off?

my dealer sent mine and had it repaired after my boat was rearended. Now above 60 the boat starts buffering side to side. Sort of like whey you are driving beside a big truck on the interstate.
I don't know where they sent it.

There's a prop shop in Longview on US259 and they repair/replace skegs.

B&B prop in Richland Hills does a good job. They have done them for me.

I am kind of chapped that my dealer reapired mine after it was an insurance job. they repainted the part that was repaired but the rest of the lower unit looks like it was drug around on the concrete floor. didn't have a scratch on the lower unit before the accident.

You could just put a SkegGuard on it. I can get you 20% off if interested. All you need is 2”-3” of skeg remaining.

A guard ain't quite the same as a properly functioning skeg. On a 250hp motor, you want a properly functioning skeg. Leave it at that. Get it repaired properly.

I am going to throw a shoe tomorrow over it. When I picked the boat up I was in a hurry because I had to leave work to get it. later after work started really looking at it and was very unimpressed. Took it out and ran it and was even more unimpressed. This is my first new boat and definitely the fastest I have owned.

I have one on mine (no skeg damage) and it performs fine. I’d get it fixed too. The guard has saved me from having to get my skeg repaired though. Hit a stump at Pines on plane... just had to replace the SkegGuard.

Skeg guards work great till you hit something substantial
Then you will be replacing the whole gearbox. Due to either not enough left to re attach or the damage being up into the bearing carrier
