Speaking of worn keels, where do people get those protective keel strips, and what are they made of?

There are couple of options. Fiberglass and Kevlar tape is available in several widths, or you can purchase cloth and cut your own strip. With tape, one edge is sewn, which leaves a raised edge that must be trimmed off or scraped/sanded down after application. With cloth, have to piece it together. Neither of these is a significant obstacle. IIRC, there is a good article on keel strip intallation on CLC's web site www.clcboats.com
