Great idea for a kayak keel strip...

Keel Strip

Garth Schmeck wrote a great helpful tip today on the P&H Blog. He suggested using Arma-Coatings for a keel strip rather then the Kevlar strips that are traditionally used. Arma-Coatings is the brand name aftermarket spray-on application that is applied to truck beds to protect them.

According to Garth, it is supposed to be much lighter (1 pound) and considerably stronger and resilient against chips and bangs.

Sounds like a great idea...
