Prop ding

Weird thing happened today. We hit a floating limb with our prop and heard big noise. We stopped of course and check for debris. We motored on with no shutter, completely normal.
Got the boat back to our lift and did a visual. To my dismay there is a ding the size of a marble on the back edge. No rip in the metal. Pic doesn't really tell anything but the ding protrudes about 3/8 inch. Did I get lucky and should I leave well enough alone?

You got lucky.

Did you check top speed? I have had dings etc not cause vibration but lose a couple MPH off the top. If you lose some top end that means the prop is probably less efficient at any speed.

Regardless I would have it fixed.
