Designed to protect and perform, the Blackfin Replacement Skeg is made from durable high-impact nylon composite featuring two tapered wings on each side for structural reinforcement and lift at every angle of engine trim. The Blackfin also features a sacrificial node on the bottom which limits the engine's skeg from plowing into underwater objects, and is shaped to turn the engine slightly on side impacts for more prop protection.
To determine the Blackfin model for your engine, measure from the front of the prop to the tip of the gear housing. Simply match this measurement to one of the Blackfin sizes listed below.Note:
The MerCruiser Alpha One when measured falls into the medium category, however it will require a small Blackfin.

I followed the directions to a tee, first time I was on the water it fell off. Now the company was easy to deal with, so stay tunedf for a second review.

I bought this as my skeg was nicked above the area a Skeggard would cover, and liked that it wouldn't draw attention to the fact my skeg was damaged. Installed on a Merc 115 4 stroke with the small Blackfin and had to cut out a notch for the carrier bolt. I sanded my lower unit with 220 grit sand paper and took off the shine. Cleaned with degreaser and acetone, and applied the adhesive. The adhesive has the appearance/texture of liquid nails but actually dries with a firm, rubber-like texture. So far has held up very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve069 Easy installation
I installed this Skeg protector over about half of my remaining Skeg. Instalation was easy, but messy. I'm not sure if this is necesary, but I also drilled 2 holes through the skeg protector and bolted it through. It has worked fine for me so far.
