Re: "Rubberize" base of Propane tank(s)?

First I bought a 10# fiberglass tank. Love it but.....need a 5#'er. So I bought a new 5#'er and started applying coats of plastidip, The stuff you dip your tool(stop right there!) handles in. But I felt it would wear through. Bought door edge guard trim at the auto part store. Cut to length. Fits tight and keeps tank edge off the boat. No more rust.

Sunfish just fine

Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.
