Hydro Shield will get your boat on plane faster, allowing you to remain on plane at lower speeds and rpm's. It also improves handling and lowers your fuel burn at low and cruising RPM settings. Hydro-Shield will also protect your propeller from damage due to underwater impacts, and its 316th's marine grade stainless steel bracket system acts as a skeg guard, strengthening and reinforcing the skeg.

Made from an energy-absorbing plastic compound, Hydro Shield can withstand impacts, natural or man-made. Even if your boat strikes natural hazards like rocks, coral, oyster beds, or sandbars, or man-made hazards like lobster and crab pots, Hydro Shield maintains its integrity and protects your prop and skeg.

It works

As advertised. Worked well in a 14 foot zodiac with a Honda 40hp on it.

Les Rogge
Very happy

I bought this unit and was a little scared about drilling holes I wanted to be right the first time. I actually got on the phone with the owner. He walked me right through it. And it works perfect. I was going to go ahead and list his home phone number. Haha

I installed on Friday evening & had the boat in the water on Saturday. All ran well. I am very happy.

Lloyd Brooks
Great addition!

Easy to install. I have a 15 foot deck boat with a 50 hp motor. One complaint was it didn't plane quickly. I added the hydro shield and it planes very quickly. It also looks nice.
