        Comments about KeelGuard Protection Strips:

        The KeelGuard is awesome! It saves my keel from considerable fiberglass damage. After being installed, I've used it to break ice during late and early season to get to my favorite fishing holes. It holds up like a champ at boat ramps and rocks. It is also super easy to install. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to protect their boat; it has protected mine from potentially thousands of fiberglass damage.

          Comments about KeelGuard Protection Strips:

          I bought this for my bass boat so we could pull it up on the sand bar and not have to worry about getting any rocks in my hull or busting the fiberglass. This was very easy to do and worth every penny. I would recommend this to everyone.

            Comments about KeelGuard Protection Strips:

            Drop the adhesive tape, (unless you are applying to a brand new craft on the showroom floor), and use West Systems Resin with adhesive (kit cost $29.95), the rubber has to be warm and soft or it will not take the form of the bow, coat both sides with the resine and she will stay for life.

            Comments about KeelGuard Protection Strips:

            Stay away from this product, started to separate from the backing, not where it sticks to the fiberglass, but the rubber part and grey sticky side. Had it professionally installed, called the installer and he told me to call Keel Guard. They told me to go buy epoxy and that that's as far as they would go with it, even only being 6 months old. My advice is to stay away!!
