I've used this stuff on some of my kayaks. It's not real thick but dose go on easy with a heat gun, sticks well and is good enough for sand and minor scrapes.

hmmmm - that looks interesting. Its bevelled, which sounds like it would so the trick. With the dolly, im really good at getting her rigged and launched without ever touching the sand, but bringing her back on the beach is another story. Anybody else try this stuff yet?

Another similar product that I found was Keeleazy (www.keeleazy.com). It appears to be thinner and lighter than the other products. I'm considering something like this to protect the bottom of my painted Hobie 18 hulls. I sent an email to the company asking how well it would adhere to my Imron but haven't heard back yet.

Hello fellow Hobie kayakers, I know the thread has been idle for a while, but...

For years I've been trying to find a solution trying to protect all my Hobies (Outback 2013, Outback 2014 and finally now... my brand new Hobie Outback 2015

Must have spent countless hours online doing research on possible, doable and above all effective solutions to protect both stern a bow keels on my Outbacks. Result... Never found anything truly worth while, either because after some research review show products not being really effective as they would offer little to no protection OR other products out there were too expensive and required some tweaking (forget about the fact you if you make a mistake or the solution don't actually work... that would be an expensive prototype)

Now that I came up with what I feel as being PERFECT solution (and cheap I should add) figured I should share...

PLEASE DONT TAKE ME WRONG... By no means I think this is better than anyone's else solution (a perfect solution i and will always be what works for you) but... I'm really happy with it and will protect my new Outback when loading/unloading the kayak to/from my truck roof rack and launching/arriving to the boat ramp (concrete)

You will notice the after making these two pieces the 32oz jar (approx. $30) is still over 3/4 full (this was also after making a couple nose/tail protectors for my longboard skateboard) - Pigment Pack (approx. $12)

Total cost for BOTH pieces: LESS $5

(Please note: MATTE scotch tape was used to prevent morphing plastic from adhering to shape roller, kayak and everything else...)

BTW you can make this in whatever color you'd like...
