Possible bent Strut / bearing
I'm a newbie and need advice.
I hit something while out on the lake caught up in a storm (very choppy) and took the boat out of the water to check the damage. Initially we felt a vibration, but didn't seem severe and passed quickly. Upon inspection we have bent the prop and it appears the strut too. That said I read a forum post about intentionally 'bent' strut bearings to ease driver swerve/pull and removal. I wondered if this was true and what year that stopped at. I have Moomba LSV 2005.
After the incident we drove for about 30 mins with no sign of any problems, but was concerned and very choppy so pulled it out of the water. I haven't put it back into the lake to try it again as I'm affraid to do more damage.
Any advise would be appreciated.
