Back in the day OMC made a while rubber molding that could be fitted to the bottom of their 3 and 6 gal metal tanks. I had one on every tank I owned. I'm restoring an old tank and need a new one. They were used to keep the tank from scratching the deck.
Anyone have a part number that I could search, or even provide the proper terminology for the part?

I just applied another similar product (sold as "truck and van door trim") to one of my tanks. I think I'll drain it this winter, clean up the rim and give it a good couple coats of paint before I put the protector back on.
For years we used a rubber mat and while it protected the bottom of the boat (fiberglass) it always trapped water and grunge under it
