Keel Guards & Shields
Keel Shields are designed to protect your boats keel in the event you run it up on the beach or rocks. If you beach your boat without a Keel Guard it will wear into the gel-coat and damage the fiberglass. When this happens its costly to repair and can provide more friction causing lower boat speeds. Wholesale Marine carries both Keel Shields and the Gator Guards brand of Keel Guards.
Most brands of keel guards offer a lifetime warranty on the product and some on the adhesion to the boat. Wholesale Marine recommends installing your Keel Shields by the book, without careful installation they can fail and begin to fall off. Applying a Keel Shield is a task where details matter.
