Before purchasing your next new Ranger boat, consider adding a Hamby keel guard to the bottom of your boat. Whether you are a serious tournament fisherman or a weekend angler, this is a great product to protect your investment. Just about every tournament I have to pull my boat onto the bank for weigh- in or to pick my partner up the morning of the tournament. The keel guard protects from scratches and adds value for resale. This is a frequently asked question each year at resale time, if my boat has a keel guard. I firmly believe it assists in the sale each year.
