With your keel guarded, and your bow shielded from damage, there is one part of the boat that still is exposed to excessive risk of damage, and that is your skeg. Gator Guards offers an extensive line of SkegShield skeg guards to protect your outboard or stern drive from damage.

All SkegShields are made of 18 gauge, mirror finish polished 316 marine grade stainless steel. The SkegShield is further reinforced on the lower edge for protection that makes SkegShield twice as strong as any OEM skeg. SkegShield doesn’t stop there, we were the first to include a drain hole to prevent water retention & corrosion!

27 Models available to fit your exact outboard or inboard engine. Mercury, Yamaha, EvinrudeMercruiser, Mariner, Suzuki, Johnson, Honda, Force, Volvo Penta, and Tohatsu. Use the engine guide above to find your SkegShield.


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 we don’t have a foot or skid plate welded on the bottom we won’t affect your boat’s performance. If your motor is still under warranty – please check with your manufacturer about drilling holes in the skeg to mount a skeg guard.
