Why dont you get one of the mobile mechanics to come and remove it for you then send it off to someone like streamlined propellers and then when it comes back from them get the outboard guy to re fit.

i snapped mine off a couple of years ago
honda 130 on my camel boat, it snapped clean off along the bottom of the casing leaving a 0.25'' stub of skeg which was slightly bent

i looked into all the options starting with a new leg and getting cheaper,
in the end i bought a weld-on replacement mercury skeg from the local chandler for 20 and took that to my local honda outboard dealer who welded it on for another 20

they're great and are acually a narrowboat hire company and chandlers on the side of a canal - i reckon they can weld water

anyway it's now as good as new, you can't see the repair unless you're looking for it and the mercury part hasn't affected the phenominal (and well documented) performance of my honda 130

I see your in Hamble, give Kieron at Ribshop a shout he could remove the gearbox for you to send off for repair or alternatively he probably knows someone more local that could do the repair for you.
