Default amateur move

I'm an amateur running a boat and saltwater fishing for sure and well aware of it. A few weeks back i was trying get up to the mouth of a creek off the intracoastal and put the trolling motor down and by the time it was down and i was back at the helm the northeast wind had blow us onto a mudflat that i didnt know was there. I kinda freaked out because im inexperienced. I finally got the trolling motor unstuck and up and by that time the outboard was down in the mud and stuck and so i started tilitng it up and raising the jackplate and givin it too her. so you know mud starts flying etc etc and we got off, but clearly it sucked up debris and i spent a day and a half back flushing that per dealer instructions to get the pee hole clear.

my concern is this. i can see the prop got a couple small nicks but doesnt look bent, but when i run the boat it feels a little rough and it pulls to the right. Im not sure if the rough feeling is in my mind or not, i know the right pull is not. should i take it over to the suzuki service dealer there in town and get them to run it and check it out?

Check your skeg to see if it is bent.
