A Hamby's Keel Protector is a low-cost, rugged, yet attractive product that highly protects your fiberglass boat from damage. I have had one on my boats for over 10 years. Never have I had any damage from beaching (required for most tournaments) or accidental incidents such as hitting stumps or running aground.
Don't let a large insurance claim happen to you. Put a Hamby's on today - you'll be well satisfied.

Up here in the Northeast, particularly the New England area, beaching our boats is the norm. "I can't even think of selling my boat to any fisherman up here without a Hamby's Beaching Bumper!" I am proud to have one on my Legend Alpha 211 Bass Boat!

As a full time guide on Lake Fork, I am in and out of the marina hundreds of times a year. Whether I am beaching my boat for clients to load and unload, parking on the bank for lunch, or navigating through the many stumps on the lake during a day of fishing, I depend on my Hamby's Beaching Bumper to protect my boat from costly damage. Whether you are a weekend fisherman or an accomplished angler, don't settle for less than the best. Get yourself a Hamby's!

To whom it may conern,
My name is Barry Camilleri in Mobile,Al. I have a Blazer 202ProV in which I installed a Hamby's Protector on the keel of my boat. I was in an accident on 3/31/05 in which I was pulling my boat. I totaled my truck, my boat was shoved 4 feet up my trailer and rested on the tailgate. My motor toter was shattered, the transon straps were ripped in half, the winch strap and safety strap was also ripped in half, the winch support and winch were twisted to h--- and back. If it were not for the Hamby's Protector the keel of my boat would have been ripped, but there was not even a scratch.. Thanks for a great product. I would highly recommend it for any boat.

Thank You,
Barry Camilleri

" I fish about 150 days a year. Almost everyday I have to beach my boat for some reason. I have installed a Hamby's Protector Beaching Bumper on all four of the Ranger boats that I have owned. Every year I sell my boat to get a new one. Every buyer asks if I have a Hamby's on my boat. There is no doubt having a Hamby's on my boat increases its value. I will not run another boat without having a color matched Hamby's Protector Beaching Bumper."

There is no way I could do without the Hamby's Keel Protector on my boat. Tournament weigh-ins and low water conditions often demand you beach your boat on unsafe conditions as well as just simply launching your boat by yourself or picking up your partner on the concrete boat ramp, the Hamby's is HEAVY duty and tough and will keep my boat from damage. Once you have a Hamby's, you will immediately see the difference and when you get ready to sell your boat, it always brings more value. Invest in the best and don't settle for the lightweight keel protectors. Good luck and good fishing.

Hamby's Protector, the Beaching Bumper is the best product of its type on the market today. The first time I decided to install a keel protector on my boat I was directed toward Hamby's product by a Boat Fiberglass Repair Company. They told me that I would be happier long term with the Hamby product and that it was the best at providing the protection for my boat. I now pull up on cement ramps in my ,000 Team Stratos Boat to pick up and let off my partners. I am not worried about keel damage because I have the Hamby. I don't worry when I pull up & beach my boat. I don't worry about the Hamby coming off, because they are installed to give you a life time of protection. I would not have a boat without protecting the keel area and would not have anything other than Hamby's Protection. This unit is truly a Beaching Bumper for Boats!!!

"When Im fishing in FLW and BASS Tour events Im traveling all over the country. During practice I prefer to launch near where I want to fish so that I save time and gas money by not running all over the lake. The only problem is that I end up launching at some marginal ramps without docks. But regardless of where I launch the boat my Hambys Protector always makes it easy to launch and load the boat by myself. It keeps my Team Yamaha boat looking great from the day I pick it up at the Ranger factory to the day that I sell it. Thanks Roger !!!"

In a perfect world every ramp would have a dock, unfortunately most ramps are far from perfect and we find ourselves beaching our boats on rocks, gravel and sand. That's why I protect my boat with Hamby's Keel Protector. Hamby's protects my boat from scratches and gouges that commonly occur not only at ramps, but when traveling over shallow cover as well, and Hamby's does not affect the performance of my boat. Protect your investment, have a Hamby's installed on your boat.

"Being on the road as a full-time touring Pro on the FLW Tour I spend a lot of time in my Stratos Boat. Just about every time that I launch or weigh-in it is more convenient for me to beach my boat rather than tie up to a crowded dock. That's why I consider my Hamby's to be one of the most important items on my boat. Just like my depthfinders and trolling motor, my Hamby's is a tool that allows me to be more efficient."
Thanks For Everything,
Andy Morgan

"With all of the places we go to fish, I wouldn't even think to run my boat without a Hamby's Beaching Bumper. It's the only way to protect my investment.

When you travel the country competing in bass tournaments, you never know what situations you may encouter at all the different boat ramps you will have to launch from. From my experience, I know that less than half of them have a dock available to tie up to and many have unfavorable bank cover to slide a naked fiberglass hull on to. My Hamby's gives me the peace of mind to beach my boat with no hesitation in places where unequipped boaters can only cringe. For this reason, it still amazes me whenever I see a boat without a Hamby's!

"Our crappie tournaments have us launching from those out of the way boat ramps that never seem to have a loading dock. I can't imagine launching at these places without a Hambys; it's one of the best investments we have on our boat."

I do many, many tournaments each year, and the Hamby's Beaching Bumper has saved my boat's hull time and again. As a guide, I am always loading and unloading clients on concrete ramps. I don't have to worry with the Hamby's Beaching Bumper on my boat.

"With my Hamby's Protector I never have to worry about whether there are enough boat slips for weigh in. I don�t have any problem beaching my boat, whether on gravel or brush. I know my keel will be protected by the Hamby's Protector. I try to buy a new bass boat each year. When I go to sell my boat, the potential buyer always asks me if the boat has a Hamby's on it. It definitely increases the resale value of each boat. With the protection of the keel and added resale value why wouldn't you add a Hamby's Protector to your boat?
Thanks for a Great Product,"

"If you are spending hard earned money on your boat, protect your investment with a Hamby's. I do and it pays. With a Hamby's, I can always get closer to the boat ramp to pick up my partner in the morning with out scratching the boat. Pulling up on rocks - No problem!
Protecting my boat at fishing tournaments is simple! Buy a Hambys protector!

The Hamby is the best keel protector out there for your boat. It will give you years of protection from rocks, gravel, sand and cement. For the cost of your Hamby, it will save you time and money in repairs for the life of your boat. Thank you Roger!

I fish 300 days per year and beach my boat on the ramps to pick up my customers, and also at tournament weigh ins all the time. I love my Hamby's Beaching Bumper and will never have another boat without one. They are the best protector on the market by far.

I had the pleasure of owning the second Hamby's Bow Protector sold in the Memphis, TN area, and the first one installed on a BassCat Boat (a 1991 Pantera II) in Memphis. I happened to see this boat recently, and although the boat was somewhat the worse for wear, the Hamby's Protector that was installed over TWENTY years ago was still in like new condition - tight to the hull and no nicks or gouges.
I just took delivery of my 2011 BassCat Puma FTD, and a Hamby's Original Bow Protector was the first accessory specified on my order. I've owned 11 BassCats since that first one, and I will not own a boat without a bow protector. There is only ONE bow protector to own - A Hamby's Original. Mr Ernie's design is still the only one that I'll put on my boats. Period.
