Cast Aluminum Boat Motor Repair

I repair broken cast aluminum boat motor skegs and anti-ventilation (anti-cavitation) plates. The anti-cavitation plate is the horizontal ‘wing’ above the prop and the skeg is the ‘shark fin’ at the bottom of the motor that protects the propeller. Call 503-490-6471 or email for bent skeg repair.

In the cast aluminum skeg repair below the owner wanted to experiment with different angles for the bottom of the skeg otherwise I would have cut it down to the proper angle. After custom cutting a piece of 6061 aluminum and pre-shaping it I tacked it in and welded some then used a flap disk to arrive at the final shape then welded it completely from both sides. The repair has 100% penetration so it’s quite strong.
