Bent Motor Mount
 
The other night it was blowing pretty good and I found myself pushed into the dock. As a result, my motor ended up catching a slip finger and bent my motor mount.

Anyone else out there brave enough to admit to doing this? Is it possible to bend/bang the motor mount back into shape?

The motor is still mounted securely, but I can't pull them motor out of the water with the new kink.

Suggestions anyone?

Haven't done this myself, and given the way my motor mounts, it would be fairly difficult to do so... but I would recommend you take the bracket off the boat and fix it. It should be relatively easy to fix once it is off the boat.
