I posted this in the main area but I realized that they probably don't have Tuff coat outside the US.
I have a 1996 Nautica 18' Deluxe rib that I've been restoring (former Navy rib). I have it re-powered and everything is working great. I love it! The only persistent issue is the poor condition of the hypalon tubes and the rub rail. The tubes leak some air after a day and don't look very good either. It looks like some kind of plastic was painted on the tubes for small wear patches at some point in the past. There are lots of small hypalon patches as well and the tubes have been casted from the inside with some improvement.
I can't replace the tubes (out of my price range) so I've thought about applying tuff coat paint and/or wear patches to get it looking better and maybe help with the many pinhole leaks.
I also should probably replace the rub rail as it looks terrible and the top 1 centimeter is pulling away. (It works fine though and isn't coming off any further after a year or so).
So...Wear patches? Tuff coat paint? Something else? Replace rub rail? What should I do and what order should I do it in? Thanks in advance.
