Unless you've scraped the keel down to the point that it's somehow weakened the structure there is little if any reason to add more fabric. Just filling any dings with thickened epoxy then after masking the "keel strip" laying down a few coats of silica and epoxy will provide plenty of protection. I add a little graphite to make it black and for me it seems more slippery and resists most damage, and doesn't weight much.
