    Just extending the tongue on my canoe trailer so I can get the big Scott out of the yard, riding in style.

    It'll be interesting to see if your install method works better than the method I used. My keep strip, I cut short and tucked in behind the Kevlar strip. On all the strips I added an epoxy bumper to protect the lip of the Keeleazy. Your keelson installation seems like a better idea than mine. We''l have to compare notes at the end of the summer.

    Its got a slight texture to it. Its pretty hard so its probably a wash. Hopeful this is going to be the solution..

    They already shipped and gave me a better deal (very reasonable) for shipping to Canada. I'll let you know how it works out. Is the material slippery?

    My 20 year old Hudson Bay has quite a few more scratches than yours but it's still going strong. The keels and keelsons take a beating and need to be repaired every three years or so.

    The 2" worked well for both the keel and the chines/keelsons. I suspect the 3" will work well on the keel. Mine is indeed the Hudson Bay.

    Do you think the 3 or 4 inch strips would give better coverage or did the 2" strips work well? Also what size is your Scott again? Is it a Hudson Bay?

    Thanks for the info......it sure looks like the easiest solution to protect my canoe's bottom.

    Ordered the 2" direct from keeleazy. Bought 41' of the bulk strip. Roughed up the keel and chines with a sanding block, cleaned with 99% Isopropyl. They installed really easy. They are tacky, but not to sticky, so you have lots of time to get them just so. Then you put the heat gun to them, and they stick like limpet to a rock. Once cooled down, they seem pretty tough. I put a bit of epoxy over the starting area just to keep the lip from being exposed.
