I have been searching for a way to protect the keel of my boat. I do a lot of river fishing and launch from cement boat ramps. I always end up dragging it a little and when I pull up on the rocks etc. I've tried gorilla tape and even sprayed on some flex seal. I am thinking of trying some spray on bed liner just for the front and rear keel. Has anyone tried this or have any suggestions? Thanks

I would look for a Kevlar canoe skid plate kit. There are some for polyethylene canoes like Mad Rivers and Old Towns. Those should work on your kayak. 

Just a drop of water in an endless sea...

Gnlman32 - I'm looking into this now, too.  I don't baby my boats and I do a lot of river fishing - dragging it same as you.  So far it seems like G/Flex epoxy is the best stuff.  Some use it to glue kevlar skid plates on poly canoes and another guy used it over Sglass on his U14.5.  I'll keep you updated on what I find and it would be great if you could do the same.  thx!
