Anyone Tried Skeg Guard

Managed to loose an inch of my skeg (don't actually recall hitting anything) and found skeg guard which is essentially a stainless replcament skeg that bolts on top of existing skeg.

Seems to be 2 varients of this - Skeg sheild (from same people that make Keel shield) - http://www.keelshield.com/skegshield.html and another one called Skeg Guard http://www.boatboys.com/skeggard.htm

At approx 70, it's probably close to cost of getting skeg welded (by time lower unit is shipped to repair shop etc).

Has anyone used skeg-guard / skeg-shield? Any opinions?

Cheers.

Having graunched the bottom of my skeg today, your thread caught my eye, I did some more searching and came up with a few more alternatives.

http://www.keelguard.com/

http://www.blackfinskeg.com/home/

I think if I manage to graunch mine again, I will be looking to invest myself.

Thanks - the blackfinskeg looks interesting. Probably quite tough because it;s plastic and will give a bit if the skeg does hit anything so should absorb some of the collision. Doesn't look particularly nice but I guess you can't have everything!
