If it doesn't make noise in the water running in neutral, I wouldn't worry. Depending on how hard the hit was, I would check for a bent prop shaft (use a dial indicator to check runout). More than .005" and the shaft needs to be straightened by a machine shop. Also, depending on how much damage, you may want a prop shop to repair the prop.
