You probably saw mine at the Nautical with one on it. The bottom of my boat is blue and you can hardly see the blue keel guard on it. The sand on the beach used to leave white scrathes on the bottom of my boat that were really noticable. I'ts about 12' long, so on a 30' er like mine it doesn't even come to the step. It sure helps protect from rocks and sand though..... I think I paid about 600 for it.

Comes in 60 ft rolls and its much less expensive than 600 bucks, when I get into the shop this morning I'll double check the pricing. Best part is its optically clear, so no matter the paint job it will show through. I have it in Rolls up to 30" inches wide. can custom cut lengths. as far as durability. While at Nor-tech, Terry took a quarter on a piece on the side and tried to damage it and it held up great.

I still can't beleive that you guys beach your boats. I wouldn't think about it. Even the purest sand will leave marks.

It sure does, that's why I want a guard on the keel. Heres a shot of us pulling a Tiger off the sanbar....After sitting for a few hours the tide went down a bit and low and behold, we barely got it off the beach!!

Tank, You will be named King Poodle if you put that chit on your Top Gun!!! Don't do it Man!!! I would try the clear stuff if you have to have it, it can't hurt to try that first.

thanks Craig, this is the same film that is on the headlights of your 2500. It is virtually invisible, you can atest to that, I'm checking on having it cut into varying widths based upon need. the best part about this film is the pliability for installation. Leave it in the sun and let it warm up its very flexible, or you can use a heat gun to get it to conform around corners.

Nort, don't act so different when people are around. I didn't want to mention the part where you were doing a little "snorkling" under us!!
