I have a three year old Mirage, one of the flippers is out of the round drum. When I push it slightly into the slot in the drum it appears slightly bent. Any help?
Thanks, Joyce

The fins are mounted on stainless steel "masts". If you run aground, you can bend the mast. Is that what is bent? If the mast is bent, you can bend back forward with the drive mounted in the hull and the hull tipped on its side. Just grip near the end of the fin and pull forward. If that is too difficult, you can remove it from the drive and straighten on a workbench vise.
