....about the KeelEazy is that it has a relatively high coefficient of friction compared to fiberglass and gel coat. Only an annoyance when expecting to slide over a submerged obstruction like a tree or rock as the boat tends to “stick”. My only significant issue with it comes into play when I want to pull my boat up over logs and rocks between the water and where I want to leave my boat. Lift it and set it down? No problem. Drag it? A friction problem.
In most cases this is not an issue and it’s a good fit for my dayboat but I will continue to go for a slippery fiberglass keel strip on my trip boats where carrying the boat solo is not an option and I must be able to drag it over whatever the shoreline presents.
