    Should I put a Keel Guard on my RXP? Hull protector.

    Okay just curious now…how many of you all have a keel/hull guard? I know they are really good to protect your hull / keel…but do they hinder the performance of the jet? Like I mentioned before I’m new at this and I had it on my Yamaha and really served its purpose…but should I put it on my RXP?

    they should come with warning to not install on a ski that will go over 45mph, so what I'm saying is - don't do it!

    I had one on my RXDI and lost no speed.....Don't know if I'd put one on a performance ski like an RXP though....if you beach it alot,I doubt it will help much.

    It will slow you down. Period. Plus after some use it will peel off, we had installed them on some rental units in Key West to protect the hulls from the coral beach in KW. They slow your ski down and will eventually tear off. Not worth the trouble or expense, just be careful when have to beach your ski. And always try to anchor it off the beach with a jetski type of anchor.

    Mine never even hinted of peeling off.
