    Vane Guide

    Hi guys,
    just want an explanation (for idiot) what is the purpose of the vane guide located after the prop.
    I was a fcuking idiot and i sucked a rock.
    My prop is 100% ok but the "blades" of the vane guide are a mess.
    I will make pics of the rock and of the damaged vane guide in the following days when i replace the part.
    The ski is working perfect even with the badly damaged vane guide and i would like a simple explanation of what it does and how it affects performance.

    Clean up the vains. Make them smooth, chiped or broken is not bad but if they are missing huge chunks then get a new one.
    They are there to reduce the twirling effect after the prop. Straightens the water in way.
