Skeg work

This past weekend broke half my skeg off, I have the piece that broke off. Anybody in Katy or west Houston can weld back on or does anyone have any suggestions? Was not going fast, driving slow in a back lake and hit something. Prop is still good.
Saw I could put a slieve over what I have but don't know if I have enough up top to drill. What do you guys think...

Doesn't look like enough remaining to attach a guard type replacement. Worst part is to get it welded your more than likely gonna have to pull the lower unit and take it apart because aluminum welding that skeg will get it very hot and likrly melt any seals in the lower unit. Unless ya can get a welder to take it slow and not heat it up too bad. I've done a coupla of these before but the had more skeg left than what you have there.

You will need to drain the oil at a minimum before getting a new skeg welded on.
Call Charlie Armstrong-281-900-1686...he has a lot of experience doing this.


You need to have the prop shaft and seals checked out as well.

I had Baumann repair my skeg a couple of weeks ago and they did a great job, but admittedly there was a bit more skeg remaining with which to work. Good Luck

Baumann did a buddy of mines skeg... looks awesome. It was about as bad as yours... definitely not enough left to put a skeg guard.
