Whether you are trailering to the next big event, launching at your local ramp, or hoisting for the day, you need to provide protection for your keel to prevent it from rocking back and forth and causing damage, or sliding back and smashing the trailing edge when launching on a ramp. The Keel Saver by Ruhne Racing is the ultimate solution to this problem.
Available for the Melges 24, Melges 20, and the J70 (Trailing edge only) the sturdy fiberglass Keel Savers are lined with Neoprene windsurfer boom grip which does not absorb water, so you do not have to worry about blisters while your boat is on the trailer in the yard, or going across the country. They have a lip on the top to prevent them from sliding into the keel trunk and handy lanyards to pull them out before lowering the keel.
