Megaware KeelGuard® Keel Protector - Fits 15'-16' Boat
Not for aluminum
This product does not do well on aluminum boats. I wish i had checked it on other web sites. On fiber glass boats it works well. This product does not offer Alternative glue or fix on its web site. I did call and they offered help. Aluminum expands and contracts too much to work well. Not enough keel primer given in my opinion . I hope this will help someone else.

Bought this for my Nitro to try and protect the hull and believe me it does what it says. Very easy to install. Great instuctions also! If you own a fiberglass hull you need this!!

I watched the enclosed DVD, read and followed the installation instructions, and it was an easy installation. It looks great on my boat!
I think it will add years of service to my boat.

company changed to avoid warranty
This used to be called gator shield keel protector . I bought mine about 5 years ago and it came with a limited life time warranty. I work with fiberglass so I promise you that I followed the directions perfectly and still it is now coming off . I'm pretty sure I can fix it with fiberglass resin . I have for sure put it to the test in that I beach up usually a few times a day out there on the water. Since the rubber only has one puncture hole in it so far and I can fix it , I'm reluctantly going to give it 3 stars and recommend it . The alternative methods out there can cost up to twice as much or more . The Line X spray on gaurd or the hamby gaurds are as far as I know the best two methods out there . Then again much more expensive. If on a budget this one will suffice but beware of most likely future work will be needed on it .I would however suggest to those of you with $40,000 rigs should probably look at the LIne X gaurds . I would if had it to do over myself . Later on !
