    Default Gale 40hp Broken Skeg

    First time busting a skeg ( i did this in my driveway or on the way home), The motor doesn't seem to have a substantial amount of movement in the different locking positions on it, not enough to get it high up as I normally see motors. Im going to be running into issues in shallow?. Anyways just wondering if I could get your guys opinions what to do. It is not leaking.

    used skeg would be ideal? but I can't find a good price one, bolt on blingy guard ones, weld? other option?
    Thanks

    I found a replacement used part which is good, hopefully it works.
    I made a personal Facebook fishing and boating page, I will use it kind of as a log and information site, you guys should check it out and be some of my first "likes" on it, and share it, maybe shoot me an idea for it in a pm, thanks!
