I have a rib dinghy
. over the past 4 years I have managed to wear the hard bottom down to the fiberglass
by pulling it on the sand. I know that I should do better but I usually do not have enough people to carry it up far enough, especially when I am in Maine
I am planning to repair the bottom. I have thought about putting something like a rubbing strake running fore and aft on the back of the bottom to take the wear instead of the bottom. I have not researched this much. I am interested in any thoughts out there.
