It's no guarantee against snagging a pot, of course, but I've had pretty good luck with a length of light spectra strung taut between the trailing edge of my keel, and the bottom of my rudder...
I'd suggest anyone sailing in a place like Maine with a split underbody configure such a setup, it's a simple thing to do... Pre-rig it, attaching it to the keel before launch with a pair of snap hooks, so you can just dive on the rudder and clip it on after launch, and the travelift sling is removed...
