Very slippery on rocks and gravel and allows the boat to slide on the ground much easier. Good for boats that are regularly used in extreme shallow gravel rivers. Fairly labour intensive to install (1 day) and can require regular maintenance if used for very abusive boating. Will slow you boats top speed by a few kmh, more if it’s all mangled and warped. For the above reasons we only recommend it if you regularly hitting the bottom and pushing your boat.
