    Home made planing fin-gctid375129

    Some where in this form there are many discussions of why you don't want one of these fins. This one came on boat. As you can see it looks like it stressed my outdrive lower unit. Do I take it off and have piece welded back on or do I cut it down even with out drive an let it support broken piece?

    Now Now, you know the right answer... I'd take the fin off and repair weld and reinstall if you think it worked for you. This is exactly what I was referring to when Sarah was contemplating installing the fin with a space between the fin and the outdrive...

    You could also reweld and cut the fin down a tad... the break looks clean like it was recent. Is it possible it happen hitting a log or trailering on/off the trailer?

      Well the reason its out of the water my son ran it over a sand bar in lake and out drive bellows tore (shift cable bellows). So that might account for it. But never had it out so I don't really know.
