Your inexpensive solution to a broken Skeg!
Be aware that any
damage to your skeg causes loss of performance.It can also significantly reduce protection for your gear case, and may increase
the risk of damage to your propeller.
The new SkegGuard from Megaware
KeelGuard provides the very best of two worlds. It will protect and prevent
damage to your motor's skeg and can also be used to repair and replace an
already broken skeg.
The SkegGuard is made from high
quality marine grade 316 stainless steel. The design also incorporates an extra
reinforced wear tab across the bottom where the skeg is most vulnerable. This
3mm thickened lower plate will withstand damage or abrasion from hidden rocks
and debris or accidental ramp dragging. The SkegGuard mirrors te profile and
contour of your original lower unit to insure there is no discernable drag or
compromise in performance. A drain hole keeps water from collecting and
Secured with stainless steel
self-locking hardware, (which is included) the Megaware SkegGuard can be
installed in approximately 10 minutes, with simple tools. It will provide years
of service and save hundreds of pounds in potential repairs.
If you wish to replace an already
broken skeg, the Megaware SkegGuard can be installed on a lower unit with as
little as 2 inches of skeg remaining. It will be stronger and much more
affordable than a welding repair or replacing a complete lower unit.
