That work was done by a professional welder, who supplied the plastic.  There is no adhesive, the circles are holes cut out so welding could be done, called rivet welds in the fabrication world.

Skid plate price including the plastic according to Matt from PA. I did tell him I will announce it to this forum.

1'x1' under the fuel tank - $50.00
from fuel tank to the grate - $275.00
the whole area front front to back like the one from Larry - $400.00 - one full day work.

Thanks for the info, those prices are much less than what I expected.  \./8

If I was going to have anything done, it would be from the fuel tank back as that is where most all of the abuse would be concentrated. A strip on the keel area would be nice for beaching on boat ramps etc.. But would not do the entire bottom as that would seriously affect top speed.

Agree. And regular plastic welding for any possible front cracks...

Anyone have tried this? Looks like a good fit as front keel guard and cheap to replace.

Looks like a good idea that would be relatively easy for most people to duplicate. PVC is certainly easier to work with than HDPE. Thanks for sharing. Good stuff. \./8

Thanks, Mokamo and Larry.  Great info.  Looking forward to how they work.  This 3M tape may have other uses, too.

I already tried the keeleazy in my hobie and it does work and easy to install but a little expensive. The PVC will be a cheaper alternative. Will do it next weekend. This weekend is the install and testing of Bill's reverse system.
