Coating Hypalon

I have a searider with extensive rub rail that is in need of replacement due to glue failure. There are five rows of rub rail around my boat making for quite a bit of surface area to cover. The Hypalon though is in good condition.

Trying to explore all options, I was wondering if anyone out there has experience or opinions about using line-x or rhino liner in place of rub rail?

How's the searider doing for you?

Check out user ncp's pics, he replaced the rubrails on his 5.4 and it came out perfect. From what I have seen, most coatings on hypalon aren't intended to replace the rubrail. Most are for cosmetics or traction. Not sure how line-x will handle all the flexing of the tubes anyways. Lets see if anyone else has any opinions.

Searider is GREAT.

Yeah the rub rail looks good for ncp, any idea where he got it so inexpensive?

Not sure, maybe he will chime in here and let you know.

Not sure how they sell their product but they have some good rubrails for inflatables. Good luck and post some pics of your progress..what ever you decide to do with the rub rails.

Slightly narrower than the standard Avon rubstrake but half the price. About $300 for materials. Over the five pieces along the side, I think that it was about 1/2" narrower overall.
