  Try sealing the edges with G-Flex
  Posted by: trilliumlake on Aug-28-13 2:35 PM (EST)
 

I wasn't real impressed with the adhesive that comes on the Keel-Eazy strips. Try sealing the edges with a bead of G-Flex. That stuff will stick to anything, even polypro (with proper surface prep) and is tough as nails. Dries to a high-gloss finish, too.

I've actually been planning to do a keel strip with G-Flex & fiberglass tape. You can color G-Flex with gelcoat colorants, too. A buddy of mine did his in black; I'll do mine in white.

I also recently repaired a crack in my fiberglass blade with G-Flex & fiberglass tape, and rebuilt the top edge as well.
