Check with your insurance company, an Adventure Marine Propeller Line Guard may qualify for an insurance premium reduction!
To choose the correct model, you MUST measure from under the anti-cavitation plate to the bottom of the skeg, as shown by ‘Dimension A’ below.
Example: If this distance A measures 12″ exactly, the guard diameter that you should buy is 12″ guard diameter, model 91112-4, as shown in the table below. If you measure over 12″, 12-1/4″ then round up to the next size. In this case a 13″ guard, model 91213-4
How to choose a model, by measurement:
|Model||Guard Diameter||Propeller Diameter|
|90709-4||09″||7″ to 8″|
|90910-4||10″||8″ to 9″|
|91011-4||11″||9″ to 10″|
|91112-4||12″||10″ to 11″|

I bought a prop line protector guard from you in November 2018 and I like to say it was well worth the money.
Last Sunday I was on the fraser river and I hit a log that was under the water and it worked great no damage to my prop and no damage to the guard.You have a great product has already paid for itself and I would recommend your prop guard to anyone who does not have one. it was no problem putting it on. would have had to replace the prop if the guard was not on the motor. anyone that does not have one on their boat should get one it is well worth the money. FIVE STARS FOR SURE

Hi Dean, thank you very much for this great review! We are of course very happy it saved you from a costly boat repair. Not to mention the possibility of losing your primary drive in a moving river.

We just purchased Adventure Marine’s prop line guard for a 2019 Yamaha 9.9 High Thrust Trolling motor for a custom Wooldridge Alaskan XL we are having built right now.
I spent a great deal of time researching prop guards and Adventure Marine came out on top compared to the other brands such as Mac’s. Their design is extremely well thought out compared to others where you need to drill through the zinc anode when mounting.
Their heavy duty stainless steel construction, mounting location and supports were all superior to other products on the market.
In addition to their product, the customer service was second to none. Greg Epp called and emailed us to ensure the size was correct. I put him in touch with Wooldridge and he went over the required measurements with the sales representative, Danny Cook.
The care to ensure that we had the right size picked out and to review the mounting instructions with the builder was unexpected. Greg went out of his way to help us out and it was greatly appreciated. Looking forward to many days on the water with their excellent product.
