Skeg

Castle marine also repair props and skegs, have used them and you wouldnt know it has been repaired.
Missing skeg only really comes into play when operating in shallows as its also there to protect prop.

Thanks all...prop and skeg shorytly going to Steel Developments (local, I can drop off) for repair.

CJL...as to the Thames, not sure if you've been here recently, but there has been more than the usual debris in the river these last few days. It's always worst at high tide, was out yesterday at low tide and the water was completely clear of anything.

The Thames is always worse on big spring tides, as they lift debris from way up the strandline on the foreshore and get it all afloat again. You can see the original line of the shore sometimes from all the rubbish! Trick is to spot the line of debris and go one side or the other of it. The debris often seems to flatten out the ripples on the surface, so where the water looks nice and glassy, it is often the most full of crap! Once you get your eye in, you will miss most of the big bits...

CJ Marine based on the Thames Barrier Trading Estate welded a new skeg to our Mercuiser outdrive. Good job and seems to be holding up will to the bangs and bashed it gets when we ground the boat.

Skeguard

Looked at these when I damaged my Skeg.
However broke off so much that there was not enough to bolt to.

Maybe it would work for you though
