    i was running today and hit a small sand bar and took some of my skeg paint off, i was just wondering how bad is this for my engine and is this anything to worry about?

    It's perfectly normal, if it bugs you that much pick up some spray pint from the dealer, but you will end up pinting it after every trip ::)
