The new #524 Model SkegShield is a skeg guard designed for 2011-2018 Mercury Verado outboards in the 150-350HP range, specifically paired with the 5.44" diameter HD Gearcase. These combos are commonly found on coastal boats, large pontoons, and offshore cruisers.
SkegShield is made of 18 gauge, mirror polished 316 marine grade American stainless steel. The skeg guard is further reinforced on the lower edge for protection that makes SkegShield twice as strong as any OEM skeg.
All SkegShields are easy to install. There is no welding—no messy glue, adhesive or epoxy, and best of all no curing or down time. You’ll be back on the water in under 30 minutes and since it doesn’t have a foot or skid plate welded on the bottom it will not affect your boat’s performance.
