Curious as to what people have done for keel
and skeg protection from abrasion during beaching over time.
I have done some research
and Dynel is popular with the Kayak
people and I thought might be a good light weight option.
I dont really want to put the "Keel shield" brand type product on due to cost mainly as i have found you can really pour a lot of money
into this project
if you are not careful, but may be the best option.
Ever heard of or tried splitting something like a 1" copper water pipe and shaping it to the keel
for a rub strip?
My skegs are solid white oak which are pretty rugged, should I Fiberglass
these all over and put something on them for abrasion protection too or just keep the bottom of the skeg bare wood and replace after they wear out over time?
