Well many thanks to all the forum members for there answers .
I will be doing the keel now. Well as soon as I can.

Seems its a great idea and practical to do Shame it cost's so much.

I expect technix could supply something similar, not worth a try?

Fitted it to my Viper a few years back, to give it protection & to hide all the nicks taken out by my not so careful diving mates!!
Fitted something like 12' went on a treat very easy (as long as the ambient temperature is high or it will not bend!)
My boat did have a roller so that it rested on the K Guard which did make a slight indentation in to it but coursed no problem!
Bought mine direct from Keel Guard in USA (but that was when the pound was worth something!) worked out much cheaper
