    Looks like metal or sharp rocks would be the culprit.. I generally only put in on Ozark lakes that are really deep, so my best chance of scuffing is at the boat ramp while trying to get on or off the trailer. Do you get shallow much? It would bother me to have the lower unit all scratched/scuffed up, so I would get it fixed after I figured out the cause. It should not hurt it to leave it scratched as long as the motor doesn't sit in water day in and out or you get into salt water.

    You can buff it a little and spray some gloss black paint on it. That stuff happens. It won't cause you any real grief since its only cosmetic. Sure does hurt your feelings though. Down here in the South land we don't have to deal with much rock but it is brutal if you get in some.
