Are these strakes perfectly flat on the back or slightly hollow? I plan to use on the edge of my wood combing which has a very slight crown to it. thanks, Mark

They are hollowed on the underside.

Answer

Slightly hollow, I believe it is a flat piece of metal, pressed to a round strake shape, resulting in the upper curve and a hollow bottom.

Answer

Hi Mark, This strake is pressed into shape, so it's hollow.

Answer

I think they're flat on the back, but I really can't remember. I bought one to put on the bottom of the keelson of my dinghy a couple of years ago, so it wouldn't abrade when dragged on the beach. Worked great, but then the dinghy was stolen. So I have no way of figuring out if it had some hollow to it. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. For the top of a combing, you could try bronze, which might look better, and I believe can be found with a hollow back. Some people just take copper tubing and cut it in half.

Slightly hollow; not flat.

Answer

They are hollow back. I used them on the edge of my combing as well. Was happy with the product.

They're hollow.

Answer

Mark, These were used on our Beneteau 423 which has a teak toe rail. They are rounded/curved on the back and fit perfectly on the rounded edge of the toe rail. Hope this helps.

Answer

Because it's slightly hollowed out on the bottom, I'd suspect if you bent it around a radius it would become mis-shapen.

Answered on 06/07/2015 by BRAD SHIPP

Answer

Because it is not a solid section, bending around a radius would likely flatten the profile around the curve.
