The new SkegGuard from Megaware KeelGuard provides the 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 Megaware SkegGuard is constructed of high quality marine grade 316 stainless steel that 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 conforms to your 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 self-locking hardware, the Megaware SkegGuard can be installed with common tools in less than 10 minutes, and will provide years of service and save hundreds of dollars in potential repairs.
If replacing 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 welding and replacing a lower skeg.
Video TranscriptTake a look at how much metal is now missing off the skeg of this motor. The owner of this boat only has about an inch or two left, and that’s it! Hi – I’m David Shumway, president of Megaware Keelguard.
As a boater you worry about hitting something underwater, trees can fall along the shoreline and logs can surprise you as they travel downstream. Or with lower water levels, large rocks or chunks of concrete that once were too deep to be a problem, pose a dangerous threat.
Then there’s the accidental ramp dragging, or when parking, the skeg gets hit and bent. And this is why our company has designed a simple and economical solution to skeg repair. This is our Megaware SkegGuard. It is construction of high quality, marine grade 3/16th stainless steel with a mirror like finish that will withstand much more damage or abrasion than the traditional skeg that you stated out with.
Installing one is really easy. Simply slide it over the remaining part of the skeg using a rubber mallet if needed. You will need a minimum of about 1 or 2 inches of the original skeg to attach to. Once it’s lined up, simply drill two quarter inch holes in the skeg using the holes in the SkegGuard as your guide. Next, take the mounting hardware that is included with your kit, and with the alan wrenches, secure them into place. You’ll notice that the mounting hardware has already been pre dipped in a thread locker, ensuring that your new skeg guard stays secure.
You might also notice this skeg wear tab at the bottom of the skeg Guard. It provides additional strength and reinforcement where the skeg is most vulnerable. It also has a drain hole to keep water from collecting and becoming stagnant or freezing. And the SkegGuard is very affordable at less than 100$ it’s a lot less expensive than welding on a new skeg. and eliminates the heat that can be generated when welding.
