This boat got trashed! The previous owners didn’t bother to install a keel guard and the gel coat damage is really severe. There are hundreds of nicks and gouges from the boat hitting logs and rocks. A few of the gouges were so bad Matt had to repair them before we could even do a keel guard install! But that’s all behind us now, today we’re installing a Keel Guard (the quick and easy way) so we never have to worry about damage to the keel again!
Its amazing how many anglers we know that aren’t using a keel guard. They all know they should but they’re unclear on how to do the install so they don’t bother with it. Unfortunately some of those same friends have ended up with costly insurance claims after running aground, hitting logs, etc. Today I’m demonstrating the installation alone to show how easy it really is. This can be installed by one person in less than an hour.
Below you’ll find links to both brands of Keel Guard that we’ve used over the years. We are not brand specific and to date, have yet to have an issue with either version. The length of Keel Guard is based on the length of your boat and the links below to Tackle Warehouse will include recommendations based on boat length.
