Bent my propshaft on a 2011 proxs 225. Prop has a wobble but there isn't a mark on the prop itself. Can this be straightened or does the shaft need replaced. Any recommendations on shops would be appreciated

Replace it, never seen one that was "fixed" live long.

Yep that’s what I did. Bit the bullet and replaced it. File it under insurance if you have it. Running the motor without replacing it you risk doing way more damage than the $1000 or so for a new prop shaft and bearings etc.

Yea, I have heard of them being straightened, but I would not. Get it all straightened and next time to the lake and if it was mine, my luck the shaft would break off and you lose the prop and everything...
