i bought a pelican 15.5 canoe in may and have enjoyed it more than i thought. i usually fish a lake and river that has concrete boat ramps and have suffered sufficient wear to warrant needing skids. i know the kevlar are suppose to be the best. i know the videos people make of doing it yourself on just about anything can be deceiving about how easy something is to do. my canoe is ramx like a coleman and is polyethylene. anyone had any experience please share and thanks.
