Thanks everyone! I'm liking the sound of flexible adhesive
strips. I was thinking SS would be ideal, but adhering it seems like I'd either be making holes in the hull, or trusting an adhesive and risking having them pulled off if they caught on a rock.
There were some REALLY pricey solutions, which look great. But frankly I don't drag it along a beach very often; mostly the wear is from the PO. So anything over $100 is pretty much out of the running.
For a mere $12 (including shipping) I ordered just a couple of feet of "KeelEazy" 2-inch tape. I really only need maybe a foot, but hey, at that price
I might as well splurge!
I'll try to remember to post back here when I've had a chance to apply it. Feel free to remind me if I don't!
