Megaware KeelGuard Protector w/Installation Kit & Instructions
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.

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.
If your trailer is designed with the boat resting on center rollers or a support beam along the keel, we do not recommend installing a keel protector. If the rollers can be lowered or the side bunks raised to clear the roller, the KeelGuard adhesive bond will not be compromised. The KeelGuard is not suitable for some aluminum boats, pontoons, catamarans, personal watercraft, or boats with a non-standard V shaped keel. Please call for suitability.
* 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®.
Megaware guarantees this KeelGuard (to the original purchaser), against abrasive wear and adhesion failure during normal use of your boat, for as long as you own your boat.

- Outstanding product.
Easy to install when instructions followed. Durable and high quality. Should be installed at factory on all boats. A little pricey but worth the investment.
