English term or phrase: collision mat
Definition from MarineWaypoints.com:
A large square of heavy canvas fitted with lines to allow it to be drawn under the hull of a ship where it is damaged. The pressure of the seawater holds it tight against the ship and greatly reduces the inflow of water.

Example sentence(s):
  • The Collision Mat created by Life Raft and Survival Equipment Inc. was designed to be used as a tool onboard sail or power boats to help slow the intrusion of water thru the hull after a collision or hull appendage failure below the water line. Life Raft and Survival Equipment
  • For larger holes or irregularly shaped punctures or cracks, have a collision mat ready to go. A purpose-built, dedicated, collision mat is probably best, but a storm jib can be successfully employed as well. David S. Malar and Angelika Jardine
  • Sea ice thwarted attempts to keep a collision mat in place to stem water ingress and the bilge pumps were unable to keep up. Transportation Safety Board of Canada
