Megaware KeelGuard Patented Engineering
Every aspect of the patented Megaware KeelGuard has been designed with boat designers and 3M® engineers. Many factors contribute to its success. A precise, abrasive-resistant blend of polymers and urethanes achieve optimal durability and pliability. A pressure-sensitive adhesive creates strength, while permanently bonding and sealing Megaware KeelGuard’s contoured edges to the hull surface. Angled grooves produce hydrodynamic channels, creating air pockets and providing a slicker surface. The perfect combination of these factors makes the Megaware KeelGuard the easiest keel protector to install, and gives it unparalleled quality and dependability.
Megaware KeelGuard comes in 11 great looking colors to match virtually any boat. All colors are UV-stabilized for true color that lasts a lifetime. Megaware KeelGuard is available in nine standard lengths or can be ordered in custom lengths.

Do-It-Yourself Easy Application in Four Basic Steps
The KeelGuard is a very simple product to install; however, the following instructions must be strictly followed. Any short cuts or missed steps will jeopardize and compromise the full bonding capabilities of the 3M adhesive. Average installation time is 60-90 minutes depending on the length of the KeelGuard. Each kit includes everything needed for a professional installation except the cleaning agent, isopropyl alcohol, used in step 2.
* Newer generation watercraft with exotic hull designs, make attaching a keel protector very challenging. The complex curves and contours make it almost impossible to achieve a full-surface bond. We do not recommend installing, nor can we warranty these types of applications. Older style hulls that are rounded or V shaped, work very well with the Megaware KeelGuard®.

I introduced KeelGuard to my fishing teammates a year ago. We can’t believe how well it works and holds up. We fish a lot of timber lakes with rock shore lines and water that is near freezing. Our KeelGuards are as secure as they were the first day we put them on. In fact, my son has one on his boat going on four years now. We are all amazed with your product. Thanks!
