Wow! That is quite a difference...I thought it was a 3 fin prop when i first saw it.

Did you notice a difference between your old one when it was running fine and the new one?

When you say, " A Little filing..." What angle should it be from the factory? Mine was at like a 90 degree angle and had nothing filed off the right side trailing edge...

Some pics of filed/tuned rudders, but your on your own with this procedure. Screw it up, it's still yours!

I'm from you area, where did you take that hit? We're out on the columbia at least once a week, and it is amazingly low.

I started filing before i saw this pic. I actually filed mine from the beginning of the Left trailing edge to the right, Making the rear of the Prop not a square.

I didn't file the side like in this pic. is this the proper method?

Yes, the pics are right. The force of the water off the prop blade in on the RH (starboard side of the rudder due to the offset is one reason the RH side (starboard) needs/can be tuned.
