Well I can only tell you what has happened to me which is I paid local taxes & had no problems the package even had the customs declaration & dispatch note CP 72
Which has the value stated on it!
I also last year bought a GPS from the US & again had no problem, but one day no doubt I will get court out!

interesting stuff

Found a USA website (West Marine) that has the keelguard listed.
http://www.westmarine.com/
Its supposedly one of the largest chandlers in the world and ships internationaly.
Interesting just to browse and check out pricing!
Definately a "toy store " for big kids so lock your credit card up!
cheers Dal

I'd be tempted to use a bit of cardboard !

Is that 21 per foot of rubbing strake or carboard?
As for the Keelgaurd if I get it from the US it should cost about $23 per foot including shipping!
Nick

Do you have a web address of the USA site??

Incredibly vast selection. Their print catalog is 600+ pages. Sort of the Wal-Mart of marine goods in terms of selection. I consider them to be horrendously overpriced on most items, except for sale items. Though they did just open a local store, I try to shop the local chandlery instead.

For you in the UK, if you don't have another source, they may be the only way. They ship worldwide.

The gemini wave rider has a keelguard as standerd makes it a tough boat worth having a look at the Gemini web site

Chaps, I wonder whether this bit of small print is important for trailer sailers?

"Note: If Your trailer is designed such that the entire weight of the boat rests on rollers or a support beam along the keel, we do not recommend installing the KeelGuard. If the rollers can be lowered or the side bunks raised to clear the rollers, the KeelGuard adhesive bond will not be compromised. May not be suitable for some aluminum boats with reinforced rib design. Please contact MegaWare KeelGuard for your particular application."
