Heel Easy
« on: September 30, 2012, 10:14:22 AM »

I just ordered a length of Keel Easy to install a keel strip on my composite boat. Has anyone used Heel Easy to protect the area beneath your feet inside your boat? If so, what's your opinion of the product?

Hi Fred,

I used and installed heel easy to patch up the wear and tear inside my cockpit.  It was easy to install and seemed to do the job, but one of the strips came unglued and probably blew out of the boat while it was on top of the car.  I was very careful to install it according to the instructions, so I don't know why it didn't stay adhered.  (The other strip is still in place.)  Anyway, it's not expensive, so I intend to order another strip and try again.

Good luck.

Thanks, Rick, I'll give it a try, too. BTW, I had good luck installing KeelEasy--it's holding up well--so far, so good.

I would apply heat with a hair dryer once they are in place to get the adhesive more gooey. The inside of most boats is somewhat textured, so this will provide more contact. Cleaning the area with acetone will help.
