Huh that 25 dollar canoe kit may be worth a try.

Needed a little bit more epoxy and was browsing my suppliers website. Thought of a keel guard for my canoe after a rocky run sunday. I'm going to do a test to see if epoxy sticks to my boat but I think I'll need polyester resin. Still, I could have a rock solid kevlar keel guard for less than 20 bucks

Going to give this a try for the very front of the keel on my Towee. Basically just for pulling up on to ramps and beaching. Let yall know if it's terrible, haha.

I think running a strip of that kelvar down the entire keel would be sweet too. woulndt be too difficult. Any clue what kind of resin you're supposed to use with kelvar?

From what I've read it doesn't matter, just want to make sure you're using resin compatible with your hull.

I'd be curious to hear your feedback once you get the kit installed.

It's a 2 piece or 2 layer kit according to the website. Is the base layer different material than the top layer or is it just 2 layers of the same stuff?

Just two layers of different width material. Will keep the thread updated.

Well, I can't recommend the canoe kit for the keel. I feel like I prepped the surface well, and I used the heat gun application. With the keel sitting on the trailer roller, I think there is too much constant pressure on the material, making it want to "flatten" back off the keel. I trimmed it shorter than the roller to see if it'd hold, which I suspect it would if It hadn't already separated.
Moral is if doing one of the Keel Eazy applications, I wouldn't adhere to anywhere the trailer will put constant pressure on the material.
