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 remaining stagnant.

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.
