Customer Commments

"I cant express how well this product works, and what wonderful customer service the company has.
While loading my boat I got crossed up in a cross wind and the keel hit the trailer supports pretty hard. When I got it up the ramp I saw that the keelshield was badly gouged........but it did it's job, the keel was not damaged. I called Sports Marine, discussed my issue and within a week a new Keelshield was delivered free of charge. I did not have to "fight" with anyone over the warranty.........what a wonderful feeling when a company actually stands behind their product and warranty."
Clayton Jones 
"I would like to say thanks for a great product. After hitting my Bonito on the boat ramp at Duncan Bay I decided to purchase a Keelshield. I was a little apprehensive about fitting it myself, but after watching your video decided to have a go.  To my surprise it was easier than it looked and went on a treat.  Really impressed with how it looks and how much protection it gives.   Thanks again for a great product."
