Doing the test on the keel shield today but Mark has given me something that is in my opinion far more interesting. Look at the pics of the sheet stuff. It's called gatorskinz.comes in a roll. Can be used straight on to tubes or deck. Uses are endless

It's on there. I was thinking with the ease of use you could mend punctures with it. Where normal glue doesn't like moisture I wonder what this stuff is like. Another test in the offing me thinks

Pics say it better than me. I just put it on my boot and scuffed it round the yard. The two pics of the sample are of it after we had scuffed it. I cleaned it with acetone. You can still see some scratches on it but it look far better than what you're boat would have it you had done the same test

We have seen a lot of the Keelguard peeling away from the adhesive backing. We now sell and fit the Keelshield and have not seen any problems as yet.
