KEELGUARD is designed to protect the keel against damage caused by scraping on ramps or the beach during launching, recovery or landing, and also against any damage that may be caused by striking any unseen debris in the water.
Wear and damage to your boat’s keel can break down its protective gelcoat finish, allowing water to reach and destroy the fibreglass laminates.
This unique product has been developed and manufactured by a company that has been providing the Marine Industry with quality marine protection products for over thirty-five years. It is suitable for leisure, commercial or military applications and is designed to protect all types of craft including Sports boats, Sailing boats, Rigid Inflatable Boats and Personal Watercraft.
A Keelguard also protects and enhances the value of second hand craft where keel damage has already occurred and is especially suitable for craft that are in regular use for hire or charter operations.
Available from stock in 6 ft, 8 ft, 10 ft and 12 ft lengths in either Black or White.
To determine the recommended minimum length required for any craft, simply measure the distance from a mark 6 inches above the water line at the bow, back to 2 ft beyond the lowest point of the keel.
The final choice of length will be determined by the intended use of the craft, and level of protection required. For example a longer length may be useful on craft that may be pulled all the way up a beach to prevent them from drifting off during a rising tide. For PWC measure from the bow eye back, ending 4 to 6 inches forward of the intake grate.
If a standard length Keelguard is found to be a little too long for your particular craft it can be cut to the desired length using a sharp bladed craft knife (or similar). It is better to trim from the aft section, using either a straight edge or the bow end radius as a template.
The KeelGuard width is 5 inches.
