Just put a new keel guard on about a month ago and it is already starting to separate from the epoxy(not from the boat). Has anyone else had this problem and can recommend what to do?

I had the same problem, replaced it twice. Finally just took it off and came to the realization that my hull would not touch concrete or rocks, per say. As I was going thru this issue I never really got a reason as to why it was happening, however, I did not have to pay for the couple of replacements.

Yep, I have completely re-glued mine on using that. Pain in the rear to use and don't dare get too much on; but it works and it won't come off. You'll have to cut boards to brace it/put pressure on it until it dries.

I had about 3" coming off near the back of it..I just got a boxcutter and cut the flap off. It's far enough under the boat that I don't see concrete touching that particular area.
