Prop OK for driving or not

I drive on a river. Last week while docking (600 rpm) I apparently hit a piece of wood with the prop .. (very small one underwater I didn't manage to see it) .

I didn't notice vibration when driving back to the ramp later
Once I had pulled my boat out, 2 pales of the prop were scuffed (please see pictures). The prop is absolutely not twisted.

What do you think : should I directly get it repaired or can I drive.

Your inputs are always useful. So thanks for your help

Agree if you are not vibrating, you should be fine. I did that on rock, let me tell you it was idle all the way back, anything above that was a whole boat shake. I bent one of the blades to the hub.

I'd be more interested to see a photo on edge. If the edge is bent then I'd send it in.
Gone, surfing.

agree ...doesn't look bad at all ... just watch for felt vibration, especially when accelerating

Enjoy the weekend
