Megaware SkegGuard

Your inexpensive solution to a broken skeg


Damage to your skeg causes loss of performance.  It can also significantly reduce protection for your gear case and may increase the risk of damage to your propeller.

The SkegGuard from Megaware KeelGuard provides the very best of two worlds. It will protect and prevent damage to your motor's skeg and can also be used to repair and replace an already broken skeg.

The SkegGuard is made from high quality marine grade 316 stainless steel. The design also incorporates an extra reinforced wear tab across the bottom where the skeg is most vulnerable. This 3mm thickened lower plate will withstand damage or abrasion from hidden rocks and debris or accidental ramp dragging.


The SkegGuard mirrors the profile and contour of your original lower unit to insure there is no discernable drag or compromise in performance. A drain hole keeps water from collecting and remaining stagnant.

Secured with stainless steel self-locking hardware, (which is included) the Megaware SkegGuard can be installed with simple tools in approximately 10 minutes. It will provide years of service and save hundreds of pounds in potential repairs.

If you wish to replace an already broken skeg, the Megaware SkegGuard can be installed on a lower unit with as little as 2-3 inches of skeg remaining. It will be stronger and much more affordable than a welding repair or replacing a complete lower unit. 

SkegGuard Installation GuideEasy application, installs in 10 minutes or less.
Megaware SkegGuard® is available in models to fit most skegs, including Evinrude, Johnson, Honda, Mercury, Mariner, Nissan, OMC, Tohatsu, Suzuki, Volvo and Yamaha.
