I had a new keel gaurd installed last year. I was lazy and didn't register it for the warranty and my luck it's now starting to come off. Is there anything I can glue it back with to save it?

3M 5200 is the only thing I have found and it is a real pain just getting it prepared to glue back in place. You need a way to hold pressure on the guard via straps till glue sets.

So rubber cement isn't an option?

+1, this is what I did. I do not think that rubber cement is rated for below waterline apps. I made a V out wood or something and used a ratcheting strap. Never had another problem until my keel guard stated to just disintegrate

GOOP marine, buy at academy.

dries clear and stays clear, got places on my champion that have had it over 4 yrs and still won't come off.

wipe with acetone first to clean them apply and duct tape the heck out of it for 12 hrs, sets in about 2 hrs but cure takes about 12.

I didn't register mine when I installed it. I got a couple of cuts in it from a rock on the shoreline. Called them and took pictures of damage. They said send a copy of receipt, pics of damage, and they sent me a new one no charge. You might try and see what they will do.

I just had Keel Guard send me a new one--they are getting more particular with sending out new ones as people were turning about and selling them on Ebay. The would like you to remove yours first and send the picture.
