I hit a log!

We hit a submerged log yesterday. Terrible noise. We shut everything down, made sure we weren't taking on water and started it back up. Motored idled fine but in gear we had a vibration. Limped it back to the ramp and when out of the water there was only minor damage to the prop - not what I expected from the vibration.

Questions - does pretty minor damage (slightly bent blade) cause noticable vibration? After prop repair anything else that needs to be checked out?

Boat is 1990 PS 190. Thanks!
