Bottom Protection

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good tough bottom coat for a wooden hull that gets moved on and off the trailer several times a month.

I am loosing wood from the keel and need to get a tough bottom on there somehow.

My boat "Menehune"

Thanks

I like the metal strip idea.

If you cannot use that the only other thought I have is two-part epoxy paint.

How about putting a metal strip on the keel?

This is quite usual on dinghies that are likely to be hauled up over a
beach.

And it can looks neat as in this photo of this ‘Squadron’
Clinker Dinghy built in New Zealand.
