Additional Information
Protect your valuable investment and give yourself priceless peace of mind with Megaware KeelGuard. Ultra tough, KeelGuard is designed to protect your boat's keel from excess wear and abrasion that comes from contact with sand, rocks, or concrete ramps. This easy-to-install, 5" wide, protective strip is made of a polymer composite and uses an extremely strong 3M pressure-sensitive adhesive. Once applied to your boat's keel, you can forget about it. Angled grooves in the KeelGuard produce hydrodynamic channels, creating air pockets and providing a slicker surface. Lifetime "no hassles" warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Read the disclaimers BEFORE purchase From the Instructions supplied with the keel guard: *** IMPORTANT! If your trailer is designed with the boat resting on center rollers or a support beam along the keel, we do not recommend installing a keel protector. If the rollers can be lowered or the side bunks raised to clear the roller, the KeelGuard adhesive bond will not be compromised. The KeelGuard is not suitable for some aluminum boats, pontoons, catamarans, personal watercraft, or boats with a non-standard V shaped keel. Please call for suitability. Remember, the bond is only as good as the surface to which it is applied. Severe damage to your boat’s keel, repairs that have not been done professionally, or any paint or gelcoat that may not have the proper bond to the boat’s original surface can cause separation of the KeelGuard, taking any loose or improperly prepared paint or gelcoat with it. It is important to have a good solid surface before you start. *** Several problems here. First and foremost, these disclaimers are revealed after you purchase the product. I use a small sailboat trailer with center rollers. I thought a keel guard would be a great way to protect and fortify that part of the boat. I had damage to the keel that I repaired which was sanded smooth but fiberglass patch only (no gelcoat). The keel guard didn't stick well to the repair, even thought it was perfectly smooth and primed. If my bottom is supposed to be perfect to use this product, then why do I even need a keel guard? Finally, the bow rise of the keel has to be very gradual and wide, else the flat product will "bunch up" when you try to apply it around the bend. There are channels cut along the length of the guard to help mitigate this, but it didn't work at all for my boat. I had to cut the guard back until it was covering only the flat part of the keel. Then the leading edge of the guard still didn't stick well. So, I spent a great deal of money and made a mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment! Delivery was quick. This hull guard is a vital piece of equipment especially if you : - beach your boat for picnics or recreation - hit objects in the water - mis-align loading the boat on the trailer. - accidentally run aground * Overtons was a great vehicle to order this part, and stayed in touch via email before, during and after the whole process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this keel guard again! This guard is easy to put on if you follow directions properly. It stopped leaks from at least 1/2 gallon of water to 4-5 drops. I think it will hold up for a long time- thanks a lot-!!

Can this be applied on a used boat over bottom paint?

Asked by: Jim 1308
Per the manufacturer FAQ: Can I apply the Megaware KeelGuard® over boat bottom paint or anti-fouling paint? "If your boat has anti-fouling boat bottom paint applied, it must be removed to expose the original gelcoat where the Megaware KeelGuard® will be installed. If desired, boat bottom or anti-fouling paint can be applied over the Megaware KeelGuard® once it has been installed."

How tight a bend radius will this product conform to?  I have a aluminum jet boat so the keel is quite sharp.

Asked by: Hipockitz
The manufacturer does not recommend the Megaware KeelGuard for some aluminum boats that have a non-standard V-shaped keel.

I question if this will affect the ride angle of a PWC. Our Sea Doo has the flaps in the back to help with slow speed steering, at speeds less than 25 mph they sosmetimes still touch the water and list the Sea Doo to one side or the other. I would thin...

I question if this will affect the ride angle of a PWC. Our Sea Doo has the flaps in the back to help with slow speed steering, at speeds less than 25 mph they sosmetimes still touch the water and list the Sea Doo to one side or the other. I would think that this could affect angle of the PWC and if not perfectly straight would affect its directional stability yoo. On a bigger boat I don't think it would make much difference. Does Anyone have any experience with this? If it doesn't affect performance it sure would help protect the bow when beaching, especially when rocks are present.
Asked by: Mike
We have not had that complaint as of yet. Just make sure it is centered to the best of your ability.
