Blackfin Replacement Skeg
Tough nylon composite fin
By Andrew Parkinson
protects your prop
and improves performance
Designed to protect lower units from damage and enhance engine performance, the Blackfin Skeg gets your boat on plane faster and holds it on plane longer at lower speeds.
Made from incredibly tough nylon composite that is stronger than steel, the Blackfin Skeg protects your entire lower unit. The added surface area of the Blackfin helps improve stability and handling while decreasing chiming and walking.
A sacrificial node on the Blackfin’s bottom is shaped to turn the engine slightly on side impacts resulting in lower unit and prop protection.
The Blackfin Skeg is easy to install with simple hand tools, tape and caulk—no bolts or screws required—and is available in three sizes to fit almost any engine.
Retailing at $89.95, the Blackfin Skeg is an ideal replacement or enhancement skeg.
