    Showdog,

    That's definitely not a "hack job".

    Looks like a job done well. Not picking up a piece of aluminum plate and welding it on.

    I don't do a whole lot of skeg replacements here on the Cheasapeake (not many rocks) but when I do, they normally run about $250-300. I never "get in a hurry" because I'm always concerned about overheating the seals in the lower unit.

    Using a mig for that is definitely getting "in a hurry".....once I was replacing a skeg on a 125HP Force and used the spoolgun that day. It had enough energy to cause the "bullet" to go out of round temporarily It was popping and creaking and even seeped out grease.
    It was a rush job for a side job a friend at a marina was doing. I called him at the first sign of trouble. He was on the phone with me as it cooled and everything was fine. It's been going for a couple of years now. That is about as close as you come to a MAJOR screwup.
    I prefer to leave the grease in the unit and have everything all torqued in place so when everything cools it comes back to the shape it needs to be. An empty case can warp. That said I fix a lot of those also.
    No matter how you go about fixing these you shouldn't just jump on it and weld like crazy. It could bite you. You can use a mig but you need to skip around and take a break or two so the heat can absorb into the entire unit.

    when I started reading this thread I didn't know what a Skeg was.

    Is there really a Skeg Depot or is that a coastal joke....

    I thought I'd bump this old thread just for the heck of it.
    BTW Showdog....did you ever weld/fill that hole?
