It's not on mine, but that looks like a hole (maybe a drilled on for something since its looks perfectly round for the most part). Not sure what they would have tried to mount right there.

It's not a tool made hole, and little sections like this are flaked off all around the strut and rudder.

In my experiance, That is a sign the boat hit something hard enough to bend the rudder, patch it with Marinetex and keep going. If this is on a boat you are shopping, look deeper and ask questions to determine if hull is otherwise sound and the rudder is straight, driveshaft straight, strut bent, and alignment correct?

It is on a boat I was looking at buying, but I think I'm going to take your first advice and keep going and let the current owner worry about the Marinetex...
