The funny thing about it was the throttle handle was in the same position when the outboard struck the rocks about halfway to three quarters on they never put it back to nuatrial so it gave me a good idea how fast they where going but they never even asked if they could trial the boat out ?!?! I'am going to with hold the dealer name until the issue is resolved just in case they are looking at this post and if they are I would like to thank them for the wonderful service

Accidents happen. I'm sure the dealer will resolve. They'll have liability insurance for this very thing. If it was an aluminium propeller, then it will have taken the full impact. Different story if it had been stainless steel. Hopefully the skeg is okay.

Regards pictures, they might be too big memory wise. Use some of the free online services to reduce size and try re-uploading.

Email them to yourself works well to compress images (just delete from sent items afterwards)
