    Picked up a big rock... Is impeller Safely repairable?

    Picked up a big rock and nicked the leading edge... Does this look like it can be safely repaired?

    yes it can be repaired send it to Impros they can fix it like new. Simple repair. while you have it out there if the pitch (RPMS) is not correct they can re pitch it as well.

    Absolutely, like Tommy said send it to impros it will be better than new
    Although I haven’t had any work done there since Dave moved on.
    By the way how does the stator look? And how in the world did you suck up a boulder like that

    not cruising....trying to give a helping hand to a boater in a very shallow spot near the dock. stator is good. the rock jammed the impeller and stalled the engine. this must be the biggest rock every sucked up!

    turns out a friend of mine was able to repair it locally (vancouver, bc), and it looks good as new. repitched it too.
