Yep chemical metal is what I used on my old Johnson, built it up then sanded back to match the profile of the leading edged then a coat of paint.

search the web for skeggard ( stainless steel ) + blackfinskeg ( rubber/nylon type substance) , these are accessories that fit over damaged skegs a lot cheaper and easier than replacing gearbox cover or welding and grinding.
Both US products
Hope this helps

I'd drain some oil and check to see if there are any metal filings present. If there are, it would suggest there may be some damage inside the leg. This happended to me last year; the engine seemed ok after impact but there was considerable internal damage would I couldn't really detect when sailing home.

I've watched this video several times and can't see what they're selling. Is anyone else having the same problem?

sorry forgot to add this skeg protection as well

SKEGPROTECTOR™
Quote "it is a high-performance
Carbon Fiber, Kevlar and Titanium
composite skeg repair and protection system."

i am in the process of ordering direct from the makers in the states and will update you with report on customer service service and product.

Regards

NEWBS

may be better than putting a stainless steel one on re long term corrosion issues with ss and alloy.
