    Question Hull protector?

    Does anybody use or know of a material that could be applied to the bottom of the hull to protect the keel (if thats the correct term) when beaching the ski? I know some airboats use teflon sheeting for the bottom of the hull but mostly to make them more slippery.

    I bought a used ski once that had the keel guard on it, I took it off. What works good is line-x, the truck bed liner, just buy a small can and brush on a thin strip on the peak of the vee.

    After watching a recent Mythbusters ep, the truck bed liner seems like it would be perfect for this application.

    How about anchoring it instead of beaching it? Or just spray 20 coats of gelcoat on the bottom and 40 on the strakes..lol or quit looking at it so close. its a jetski...lol
