Looks real smart in the grey, hardly even noticeable from a distance, think the black would have looked out of place 👍🏻

Thanks, will look them up. My current keel guard has been damaged by the trailer - getting another keel roller added tomorrow at its annual service. 👍

I used the same product on my boat which is quite easy to do yourself.

Under their warranty statement it's not suitable for trailers with centre rollers and there for not covered if you have any issues as I did. Even though on their own site advertising the product they clearly had pictures of boats on trailers using it.

I couldn't remove mine once it got a tare from catching the bracket to the side of my rollers so have patched it with silicon

Mat what length Keelguard did they fit?

I'm looking for a keelguard but ideally to reach from the bow eye all the way to the planing pad at the back. I find most scratches are nearer the transom as I recover in very shallow water. If I fit a keelguard strip starting mid way along the keel or with a joint in it I fear it may peel off.

Out of interest has anyone used this stuff?

Force 4 Protective Keel Tape Kit

Thanks
