    impeller / drive shaft damage

    Heard metal clanking sound when starting ski, so towed it from the floating docks and trailered it. When I got up under it, I noticed fishing line jammed up around the rubber impeller boot and a portion of the boot was missing. Pulled pump and found splines gone on impeller and driveshaft. Since all the grease was gone in the impellar boot.

    I assume what happened is that the fishing line cut back the boot, grease escaped causing the splines to overheat and melt and break away. Pictures of the impellar are attached.

    Are machine shops able to fix this type of damage, or do I have to buy a new impeller and new driveshaft?

    I am sure the proper machine shop can fix that shaft, they fix automotive axles all the time. However in your case it'll probably be a better idea to just replace with new items.
