Post keel guard?
I really don't want my aluminum boat getting scars on it at the boat dock when it does touch/hit the cement. Has anyone used those rubber keel guards on their mud boats to protect the keel area at the lower bow section?

I've owned aluminum boats for 25 years. You might be over thinking it. In 2007 I replaced the 1956 Lone Star that my uncle gave me with a tracker Grizzly. The aluminum on the keel of the 1956 lone star was still good. I kept the tracker for a decade and it was fine when I got rid of it too.

Ever tried, oh I don’t know, not parking your boat on the cement?

Use Gator Guard's "Keel Shield". It is a Polyurethane, not PVC. The cheaper PVC options do not hold up to abuse, and are known for delamination issues.

It's concrete......cement is an ingredient in concrete. A powder that when added with aggregate, water, and sand makes concrete

Watch your mouth. He didn’t say a darn thing about adding water, aggregate, and sand now did he. It scratches on cement. Get it right.

good question,,,,,, I have the hybrid bow since I hunt the ICW a lot here in the NW Florida. cuts through the chop much easier. But with the bow like that, it's scrapping the boat dock too many times when I'm launching by myself... just protecting it that's all.. understand..

Not necessarily. It's placed on the ground. It pours out of the chute. It's poured inside the wall out of the chute, if a pump is used the pump places it from point a to point b.

Next....
