canoe skid protection?


Recommended Posts

has anyone ever did there own skid protection on a canoe or kayak? my old town is getting some pretty bad scratches on the bottom and to prevent further damage I was thinking of doing my own skid plate. old town sells a kit but its $300! its Kevlar and epoxy. 

how would a strip about 6 inches wide of fiberglass mesh and epoxy work? or will it peel up after a few bumps? I'm thinking if I take my time with the prep work and make sure everything is really clean, then ruff up the surface with some sand paper it would hold together. but I'm not sure. anyone ever try this?
