SkegShield Skeg Guard
Easy fix...works great...
I took off about 3 inches of my skeg while running through a "shallow spot "and was looking for an easy fix when I ran across this Skeg Shield on the BPS sight. It has been several months since I put this thing on my Merc and so far it works GREAT. Install was a breeze. It kinda looks cool too. Thanks for the easy fix.

New Boat "Bling"
After fishing a river tournament, I noticed that I had lost about an 1 1/2" of my skeg. I could have filed an insurance claim and had the sked repaired but my insurance deductible is $100. The SkegShield Sked Guard only cost a little over that w/shipping. Plus I didn't have to file a claim. After ordering from BASS Pro Shops, I received the skeg a few days later and installed it in about ten minutes. Also I didn't miss a tournament two days later.....Some of the guys said it looked good and added "bling" to my motor...

Very Good Insurance
This is my Second Skeg Shield. I like the drain as my first Skeg Guard did not have one. I fish the Louisiana marsh with plenty of oyster reefs. My using the Skeg Shield keeps me fishing. And, unfortunately, makes me a little more daring in where I go. My boat will get up on plane in 10 inches of water and run in 4 inches so I am always hitting those pesky oysters. (Ok, I do have a hydraulic jack plate) This add on is a must for my boat. Really adds strength to my lower unit. Great Product.

Quick fix, not perfect
After carefully checking with the manufacturer as to which skeg sheild i needed, I ordered one up from BPS.
Installed the sheild this weekend and its simple, 5/16 drill bit and drill and your good to go.
I followed the directions and still cant get the sheild to fit snugly on the remainder of my skeg. I feel as if this will cause some water resistance when running, but only time will tell.
Its easy to install and theres no doubt the skeg looks better, I just wish it fit a little bit better!
