Out of interest has anyone used this stuff?

Force 4 Protective Keel Tape Kit

Thanks
Try this guy he sells it in rolls to 100ft Gator keel guard there's a video on his website showing how to put in on 👍http://www.specialistsmallcraft.com

He wouldn't fit me one as the leading edge is supposed to be 6 to 9" above water line and RB have a low bow eye in his opinion
