Default Damage repair

Rookie mistake #1
I neglected to raise the prop after loading it on the trailer. Wife was at the helm, but I failed to mention it to her. As I was pulling out, her the grinding as the wife start yelling. DAMMIT!

Prop is fine but rudder took a good grind. (See pix)

Thoughts? Can I grind with a flappy wheel the edge?

That is not as bad as I have seen, Use a sander and smooth it out and put some paint on it.
Good Luck.

P.S.Chock it off as a learning experience.
We all go through it.

You can install a skeg guard, have someone who knows how to weld aluminum fix it or as Don said clean it up with a file and paint it.

Put a skeg guard on it so the prop is protected in case of future slip ups.
