Personally I can't sing their praises load enough. A very good sensible investment for any boat.

hello all....thankyou very much for your replies, we have decided to go for the keelguard, and although it seems overpriced, it will get the job done,. as the keel, especially the front part seems to take the greatest damage (not much so far, just a slight knock) but for peace of mind it seems a worth while investment, we have gone for a 6ft length to cover just below the u-bolt to 6ft along the front secton of the keel.....is this enough?

That's the bit on mine that needs protecting, judging by the scuffs and bumps on it. I suppose because it is the bit nearest the accident

I went for 12' but 6' is what they recomend if I remember right!
No regrets for going for 12' as it gives me a lot more protection
& have you seen me drive the thing

Perhaps six foot only is a good idea - it won't interfere with planing.

thats partially what i was thinking, that 6ft would not spend allot of the time in the water when planing so shudnt effect anything at all, and so no reduction in speed, no matter how small it may or may not have been!
