Re: seeking advise for rub strip layout
Since these last strips are pretty close to the turn of the bilge I'd be more inclined to let them follow the curve of the hull instead of parallel to the keel. I think I would also reduce the thickness of these ones some, the finished thickness of 1 3/4" with the plastic strips added on top of the wood strips seems a bit overkill. I would still want some sacrificial strip there though, you're intending for this boat to live a hard life.
