I still havent done anything. Too busy blowing money on other accessories But I would like to price the new coating and see how hard it is to apply rather than using one of those adhesive keel guards. I was just worried some of the stock guards wouldnt fit well with the odd bow shape compared to other boats.

The new coating is supposed to run about $1200. That's de-rigging, grind down, apply, re-rig. Not sure if there's a discount if you de-rig/prep on your own/re-rig. I'm sure he's pretty particular about the prep work to get solid adhesion.

Yeah, if you're handy and just willing to do the work, you can de-rig and flip your boat and DIY with another product or just do a keel on trailer. I'm thinking about getting the stuff Todd originally put on my hull, by Wearalon and refinishing. Should cost about $250 and a few days of work. Also considering getting a line-x type of keel sprayed on as well as the bottom of the transom for banging rocks when rowing. Lots of options about for roll on armor.

I need something on the nose of my riverhawk before too long. It's wearing in an area just from sliding it up on concrete boat ramps. I try to pull up on the upstream side off the ramp when I can, but now and then that isn't possible.

Jerry the wetlander stuff is supposedly pretty good but if you're worried about the abrasion on the kinda stem/keel area you may consider grinding it down and glassing in a strip of Kevlar. They sell kits for canoes or you could just order a yard of Kevlar for a few bucks and a quart kit of epoxy. However I don't think epoxy sticks to gelcoat/polyester resin so you'd have to use poly resin. I know people do it with canoes all the time so it could be worth looking into.

I just stumbled across a site, www.keeleazy.com that has some pretty cost effective peel and stick options.

Seems like 3M or someone would offer something similar for an industrial application that could be used on a keel, but if they do I haven't found it.
