Re: Boot strip
A big draw back of tape is you cannot vary the width of the stripe to adjust for the curvature of the hull, causing the stripe width to look narrow at the bow and stern. If the current stripe does not make this adjustment, then I guess you wont lose anything.
I personally would not use tape.
