I found some damage to my prop when I got off the water today. Is this something that needs to be repaired, or is it not a big deal? I did not notice any vibration or performance issues and don’t even know what I hit to cause this.

Yes, prop will vibrate, even though you can’t feel it, and damage prop shaft seals.

I’ve certainly ran worse. But sure it wouldn’t hurt to get it fixed.

You could dual hammer it out and it’ll be fine. If you take it in to get fixed, there’s a 99.96% chance you’ll ding it up the very next time you take it out.

Straighten it out and plan on getting it reconditioned in the off season.

As was said prior, you will want it fixed, or you will pay for repairs to the lower unit later and have to get the prop fixed... you could always use this as an opportunity to buy a spare prop, then send this one out to get blueprinted, then you'll always have one ready to go while the other one gets repaired... just a thought... LOL...( I love spending other peoples money )

Definitely needs fixed. Running it will just make it worse. I'd sent to one of the prop shops like Steve's.

Buying props right now isnt the easiest task. And they are a bit expensive lately

Yes fix it. No mention as to size but Hop has one for sale that is priced right.

I've for sure ran worse as well and it never caused any issues to the motor.

Fix it when you can but I wouldn't sweat about it

Send it until you can afford or find a spare one. Then have it fixed up, that is nothing compared to props I have ran and ones many others have ran.

Mine looked a little less than that a couple of years ago and the prop shaft turned out to be bent. It was by luck I was at the boat dealer getting some other service done and I asked them what they thought. They checked it out and said if I had not caught this, I would have damaged my whole lower unit. So If you dont get it fixed now at least make sure the prop shaft is not bent.
