Default Repaired Skeg's Paint is chipping

Hello everyone,

Long story short, the skeg on my 200 Yamaha was partially broken about 4-5 months ago and repaired by the dealer (Sundance Marine). They said the entire lower unit did not need to be replaced, but they could fabricate a piece to fit exactly where the other piece was broken on.

They did the work and it painted it, everything came out fine. I just noticed there is a chip in the paint in the area in which it was replaced with some after market materials. (See Image) it's probably some metal compound they used to repair it and it looks "pinkish".

My question is should I be concerned to take it out this weekend with the fear of more paint coming off or even worst somehow affecting the material they used to repaid the broken piece on the skeg?
