Rib Rubstrakes

We are building a 530 Rib at the factory, was wondering which rubstrake is the most common height in mm for this size rib ? 80 mm or more ? are big ribs being build with lipped rubstrakes (water defelectors) or plain ones, seems lipped are better as they keep water down when splashing sideways against tubes. Works perfect on sibs. Any advise is welcome.

Happy Ribbing

I much prefer a Heavy duty D section rubbing strake, Offers much more protection.

where would one be able to purchase some rubbing strake like the ones pictured? I need to replace mine as they are falling off and I am missing a section...
