What if I already have a Hydro-Foil installed on my boat?
No problem. Our products do not come with pre-drilled holes for installation. You should be able to use existing hydro-foil holes. If your propeller size requires the MK-II, you can just order the Propeller Guard Skeg Guard (PGSG) without the hydro-foil and use your existing hydro-foil.
Will it help my boat get better gas mileage?
It will vary with every combination of engine and boat. Most houseboats and pontoon boats notice a decrease in gasoline consumption. Some boaters save as much as 30% in gas.
Will my boat decrease in speed?
It will vary in every combination of boat and motor. Most boats see an increase in speed because the water is being sent to the rear instead of flying off the sides of the propeller. The Hydro-Foil Propeller Guard® is not intended for boats exceeding 90hp and 35-40 mph. However, many boaters still install the unit to protect their propeller and for safety reasons.
Do I need the hydro-foil or just the propeller guard?
Typically, the hydro-foils are used on boats that plane. Hydro-foils will help keep the bow level, plane faster and pull water skiers up quicker. The MK-I is only sold as a complete unit with the hydro-foil and propeller guard. The MK-II may be purchased with or without the hydro-foil. Generally, houseboats and pontoon boats do not require the hydro-foil unless they get up and plane.
How long does it take to install?
The average person should be able to install The Hydro-Foil Propeller Guard® within 30 minutes.
What is the product made out of?
The Hydro-Foil Propeller Guard® is made out of energy absorbing, high impact plastic.
