Keel Guard

Postby GaMatt72 » Wed Oct 26, 2016 6:42 pm

Anyone ever try a Keel Guard on their boat? Seems my wife's family always beaches their boats to picnic and such and our lakes are normally clay and has some rocks so I want to protect my keel. I have seen a few people with them but never asked of it worked or had any negative results. So what say you?

I installed mine about 5 years ago,saves the keel from getting scratched by the river bank we always beach her.
The banks are mainly grassy clay but get some rocks from time to time depending on the river levels.
Make sure you follow the installation instructions to the letter.

Cool thanks.. I ordered one and it said the 8ft was what we needed for our 212. Do you have a pic of how it has held up after these 5 years?

I put one on my boat and it ripped on some rocks. It did it's job and save the boat from alot of damage. A friend had on on his Rinker, but it came off after a summer of hanging on a strap boat lift.

I ABSOLUTELY recommend it! Have used it ever since I bought Hot Pursuit and has done an AWESOME job when beaching, and have hit some wood :( and it worked GREAT. Never have had a problem with it :2cool:
