I believe the prep patch is alcohol not adhesive, the patch contains the adhesive, at least in my application, nice demonstration though thanks

i was wondering if that would work on my bass tender boat? its made out of ployurethane i guess the same as a kayak.

brickey mark for that type of boat I would put their keel guard on and then be done with it. You wouldn’t have to worry about it afterwards

Flex tape would do the same thing wouldn't it???
Bearded Bass Brawler
Bearded Bass Brawler - 3 years ago
Dj McNeil I think it probably would with multiple layers, stuff is 1/16” to 1/8” thick. I originally wanted to try flex tape but never came across the tape just the patch. Gator Guard came to me and said go for it

In other vids. that I have watched, they have used a heat gun to smooth things out. Maybe you could try that next time.
Bearded Bass Brawler
Bearded Bass Brawler - 3 years ago
Les Boucher I like that idea a lot, What I should’ve done is put a little relief cuts in it. I received the product with zero instruction. But next time it’ll come out a lot cleaner.

i am curious why you did not address the non molding issue with this product? it was and is so obvious that it isn't flat molded to the kayak even to the p[oint of it sticking out at the front edge what looks like a 1/4 inch or more. i wonder if using a heat gun to stretch it and shape it would work because what you have there is not a very good instalation or not a very good product. good vid thanks for the upload i think i will use keel eazy .

+Life and Pryce ! what happens when people get free stuff from companies. They push it on everyone regardless of if it works or not.
Nick Barr

Life and Pryce, on most sharp keel bends, a relief cut or two to help bend around the sharp upturns are helpful. On my installs I'll cut a couple of relief cuts, then fold over, and sand smooth. Turns out great and is much more durable than any of the kayak keel protectors out there

But you didn’t acknowledge it and point it out. It’s all good man i get it .

Life and Pryce ! If you are referring to the wrinkles the short answer is I didn’t know it was going to happen. When it did and I am on camera and only get one take, I had to panic on the inside and just go with the flow and finish.

I don't really understand what I'm seeing. It looks like the Keel-Guard at the nose of the keel is not down or adhered to the boat. Also there are a lot of wrinkles along the edge that we can see. Do these come out or get sanded down at some point. I was really surprised that you went ahead and painted before the Keel-Guard was totally down. Not trying to be a nit-pick but just wondering.
Nick Barr
Nick Barr - 3 years ago
Jack, Jeff, for sharp keel bends, a few relief cuts do help to smooth it out. On my installs I'll typically just make a cut then layer over, and sand down smooth. Works out great!
Jeff Cachero
Jeff Cachero - 3 years ago
I noticed that too. I wonder if making a few relief cuts would help so it lays flat

That did not look flexable enough no close ups but from back here it looked un molded not a smooth job atall better of throwing a piece of drain pipe in the oven untill its flexable and sticking that on least it will mold to the shape . Send me it lets see if its any good ile do close ups

I've found the only way to get this smooth around a radius or bend is make relief cuts along the side and then lay the material over top itself. I've also found it may not be totally waterproof, so I wouldn't use it as a permanent fix for existing holes (plastic welding is still the only real solution for holes). Lastly, there are a few brands of these UV cured fiberglass patches that may or may not be cheaper alternatives: CRC, Bulls Eye, Rapid Fix, etc.

Did my native ultimate with fiberglass, getting ready to do my OK Ultra4.3 same way. Little more in depth but not hard, just have to flame treat (get off release agent from mold) is all and use Gflex epoxy. I haven't tried gator guard? tried others and nothing stands up to concrete boat ramps yet? just try not to do any Dday style landings! lol ---- good video btw --- J

If you use Loctite AA 3035 (about $45 per dual 1:1 mix tube) you don't need to do anything to your hull, just clean normally and bam, stuff will amaze you.

So Gator Guard called me after the video and install was done and said to make small cuts in the material to avoid the wrinkles.

The problem is that this will wear out eventually to. I wonder how hard it is to remove when it does.

I went to Gator Guard website and I could not find the Keel Shield Activating wipes or the plastic Squeegee. Are they included in the Gator Patches. The other videos on youtube did not mention either of these items. I am glad you are thorough. Where do I find the 2 items in question? Thanks!!!

Cup & Cone - 3 years ago
The squeegee is same as window tinter or vinyl wrapper would use, auto shops have them; although a heavy rubber roller is probably more effective. You can use pure acetone to clean, because HDPE isn't soluble at lower temperature.

So Gator guard sent me a care package to do a video with and they threw them in the box. Apparently I was not suppose to use them for this application but both pieces worked really well

Jerry, I understand - anything other than the gray resin color would cause it not cure properly with UV light - but it can be painted afterwards!
