Where to source this type of strake?

Can anyone advise where this type of heavy duty strake is available from please (for the Halmatic Pacific)....?

Its got what looks like a galv metal strip inside and is bolted to the hull.......

Want to replace all that is in place and reinstate the missing section which runs the full length of the boat beneath the sponsons....

Many thanks.....

That looks like the stuff that is used on trucks? Hard plastic or rubber like? I guess it's the strake that commercial boats use on their sides for protection.

I have no idea where you'll get some, useful aren't I?

update on this......

we need around 20m of the strake......roughly 2inches wide by 1 inch high. Its basic D section with an aluminium strip inserted through which you bolt....

Wilks had the correct stuff BUT its 32.50 per metre (plus the aluminium strip and tha's not predrilled or anything).....and you need to order 30m minimum.....After first querying whether this was a typo I moved on to alternatives....

Polymax have a suitable alternative cheaper, but still suprised at the cost....anyone got any more suggestions?

I truly can't believe that a sacrificial D section of rubber can be so expensive....Its not as though its held up particularly well if the existing stuff is anything to go by
