    Default In Search of Tracking Fins for '86 Saltare

    I found some rocks while exploring a new-to-me lake. I'm ecstatic that it was at idle as opposed to full speed, but there is a lot of inertia behind a 23' boat with 6 adults on board, and KY limestone doesn't give. I've got some minor scars to the keel and two trashed fins. I'm looking for someone that may be parting out a boat, or if anyone knows of an aftermarket source for something close - my boat already has an aftermarket rudder and port, and driveshaft so i'm not tied to keeping it original in any way. option #3 is send them to a prop-shop for repair but I'd rather just bolt on something new if possible. My nearly new Samsung S7 (designed to be water resistant) failed and let water into the camera lens earlier the same day, so no carnage photos to share.

    I believe the proper term for tracking fins is skegs. This may help in your search. I've seen some listed here in past. Best bet is to find someone parting out a hull. Should be interchangeable across all models.

    Thanks, they seems to be referred to as "Turn Fins" too. Here is the aftermarket source that I was dreaming of. I'll give them a call when I get smarter about what is underneath my boat tonight.

    They also seem to be the manufacturer of the rudder assembly that i bought from skidim.

    Marine Hardware is who I was going to recommend, they have a huge selection of running gear and underwater bits for inboards.. Measure yours and they'll have something close if not exact.

    Good luck with this part or in General? I use them a lot, but didn't have anything like this part listed online. Likely too model specific. I need to pick up the phone, but real life has been putting thr clamps on my boat time...

    Haven't called marine hardware yet, wanted to inspect and get dimensions first. Carnage photos as promised.

    Those look like they only need a little light buffing to bring them back...

    Man do I feel for you, I somehow backed my boat into a tree while leaving the campsite this weekend. Busted my platform pretty good! Best of luck with your search!

    That's a heck of a bend. Any damage to the hull where it mounts? I recall the hull is very thick from when I drilled for my paddlewheel. If not cracked plan B can always be to heat and straighten, clean up with a grinder.
