I was wondering if anybody could let me know if this looks right. I am a new boat owner and really don't want to screw anything up. I just bought my first boat, a 1999 19' Sea Ray 190 Bow Rider w/5.0 Mercruiser Alpha 1 I/O. There is a fairly small chip on the bottom-rear part of the skeg, so I decided to purchase a Skeggard. I tapped it over the skeg, but it just didn't look right to me. As you can see in the pictures, there seems to me to be too much overhang towards the prop, and the top of the Skeggard is not parallel to the prop housing. I don't think there will be any issue with the prop actually contacting the Skeggard. There is room there, but not much, maybe 3/8". So, before I drill, could somebody tell me if this looks ok, or if they sent me the wrong part. I ordered it from ******** "for Mercruiser Alpha I drives '85-'90" but it did not say what model it fit on the packaging when I received it. The only thing on the packaging was part # 99002, but this does not match ********* "item #". I am assuming that Part # 99002 is for Skeggard and has nothing to do with ********* item numbering system.
Thanks in advance,
'99 Sea Ray 190 BR
- I hope I was able to make myself clear enough
