Rated 5 out of 5 by Benelli Good as New
The reason for this purchase was due to a shallow rock bed. Our boat is only a couple of years old and we would like to maintain it as best as possible. This item was easy to install and the appearance has been restored to as good as new or better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BeeBee Waste of time
The first time you touch anything under water it WILL come off and leave a mess of sealant on your skeg that is almost impossible to get off. If you get the bright idea of drilling and installing SS screws and hit something, the Black Fin will rip in half, not as durable as they say it is. It took 5 mph off the top end of my 90hp Mercury. I have made the mistake of trying 2 of these hoping it would work, wasted my time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ATWELLFISHING GREAT PRODUCT
The ease of installing the product along with the fact that you do not drill any holes to weaken the skeg makes this even better.I have lost 1 of the skegs when I hit 2 sand bars on the Colorado River but I was able to fish the tourney with no damage to my lower unit or prop.It has increased the speed that I am able to make turns and I have not noticed any loss in top speed.

Broke off part of my skeg. Purchased this to repair it. It does stay on the skeg if installed like the directions. It does help with hole shots. It did not slow my boat down. The bad is at about 60 mph the boat has chine walk.
