How easy do they scratch. Will just bumping stumps while trolling scratch them? Will they scratch from trolling over stumps?
The bottom of my boat has never touched anything except stumps while trolling and it looks terrible under the flat part of the bottom. I mean it looks like it was run aground on the ramp. But my keel guard doesn't have a mark on it. And I never beach my boat. Just wondering if this is normal?

All of my boats have been black bottom boats. Yes...they scratch easily. The previous boat was a Nitro. It had some thin gel coat. It scratched just trailering it. My Skeeter is a little less prone to showing scratches. But it still does. They fish better. Haha.
