Protect against ramp dragging, rocks, debris, and submerged objects
Installs easily in less than 10 minutes
A model to fit virtually any skeg
Made from anti-corrosive, 18-gauge 304 stainless steel, SkegPro™ protects against harsh marine environments. Its mirror-polished finish creates a custom look and lasting protection.
What you're looking at is a brand new un-marred skeg on a brand new outboard engine. Hi, I’m David Shumway – president of Megaware KeelGuard- and what we’re best known for are all the protection products that we provide the boat owner. Take for example the skeg that is on your engine – or on your outdrive if you happen to have an I/O. The function of the skeg is fairly simple. It’s part of your steering system. It acts as a rudder. It’s also there to help the propeller from hitting any underwater obstruction by deflecting objects away from the prop.
Now what a lot of smart boat owners are doing is purchasing one of our SkegPros to guard against the possibility of damaging or bending their skeg from a hit or from the wearing away or abrasion of the skeg, which happens whenever you run in shallow water and the skeg drags through the mud or sand and begins to wear away - sometimes quite dramatically. It can also get bent broken or chipped when it hits a rock or a chuck of concrete.
Remember skegs on motor are usually made of cast metals or aluminums which are a fairly soft type of metal. Unlike your original skegs metal, the SkegPro is made from a much stronger and more durable marine grade stainless steel. It really holds up and with its mirror polished finish it looks great and gives that customized boat to your boat.
Even though look awesome they are engineered to take punishing blows. We’ve even had some returned under warranty where the product was bent and distorted but severed as a sacrificial item that protected the skeg from being destroyed. – saving the boat owner a very expensive repair or insurance claim.
Best yet, they are extremely affordable at just $69.95 and they come in a variety of sizes for most outboard engines or I/O’s on the market.
Installing one is very easy and only takes about ten minutes, or less. First, using a rubber or wooden mallet gently tap one on over the leading edge of your skeg. Then drive it on with the mallet until fully seated to the shape of your current skeg. And drill all the way through your skeg by using the pre drilled holes on the skeg pro as a pilot hole. Next attach the screw and nylon hut that comes with the kit and that’s it. Give your boat the edge!
