Gator Guards was born in 1994 when one of the founders of the company found a gap in the current standards for keel protection of her family's boat. She loved hitting the water and spending time with her family on the boat, but she was not such a fan of causing extensive damage to the hull of this boat. Realizing that the market needed a high-grade, high-quality protection option, Gator Guards was created. Gator Guards has put countless hours into research and development to bring its customers the highest quality products for the marine market at an affordable price point. All of their product lines are proudly made in the USA. Customer service and satisfaction are at the forefront of this company, and it truly shows when you get your hands on one of their products.
