Re: CLC Rub Strip
Posted by John Beck on Feb 20, 2007
Paal, A rub strip is piece of material (wood, metal, plastic, fiberglass, extruded aluminum strip with rubber insert) attached to an area on the hull to protect the hull from damage when it rubs (bumps, grinds, slides) on something. There may be rub strips on the bottom of flat bottom boat to protect the bottom when the boat is pulled up on rocks or concrete boat ramp. There may be rub strips along the sheer line to protect the hull sides when it rubs on a dock, pier or other boat. In general rub strip protect the hull from damage. Cove stripes, painted just above the water line, are decorative and do not provide any protection.
I hope that helps.
