      Am about to replace mine as well.
      Looked at rubber and timber but have decided to go with 2" hemp rope with a wire strop inside the strands. The wire has eyes spliced in the ends and is tentioned at each end. 
      All fixings are hidden by the rope.
      Buying it from a Narrow Boat chandler. Works out a lot cheaper and looks authentic. Just a thought. Tony

      Hi Tom,

      My 1979 model has black rubber D-fendering that looks like the original fit.
      As Oliver says, it may not look as nice as a wooden rubbing strip, but it is available by the metre (or foot) and once fitted requires no maintenance. 
      Regards,  Tony.
