I have heard that they will protect your hull but it makes it harder to get off stumps because the boat doesn't slide as well.

I believe they are pretty much the same thing. I know if you get it from toledo fiberglass it will come with a lifetime warranty

Had the gator hull put on my 08 Skeeter a couple years ago. It has already saved me money and repair time in the shop. It's tough and I am very happy with the product.

I put a Gator hull on my TR20 Triton about 2 years ago and I'm very satisfied it dropped maybe 5 MPH off but 5MPH compared to a peace of mind when idling thru stumps it's well worth it. Got my put on by Mikes Fiberglass at Lake Fork mine also has a life time warranty I had some small nicks in it last year took it over there and the fixed them.

we had the Gator hull put on our 1993 boat and believe me Mike did a great job. When I sold it the guy bought it because it already had a gator hull on it sight unseen.

Instead of getting the holes fixed use that money and get the gator hull instead.

Mikes Fiberglass at Lake Fork on FM 515 in Emory also has a life time warranty.

what do you mean by professionals? Mike has been in the fiberglass repair business for just as long as those guys in Louisiana and you don't have to drive an additional three hours each way.

He has repaired thousands of boats and put on hundreds of Gator hulls.

Gator hull will add a couple hundred pounds to your boat, the gorilla hull I had put on my 200ZX was 48 pounds
