Some others will offer it as an option like Quicksilver and Lodestar (both now under the Brunswick umbrella)

Prairie, thanks for the corrections, I know Dupont makes Hypalon, didn't know Dupont doesn't make the final fabric rolls selling them as such, just the coating. Wrote my boat builder, they sent me an erroneous information regarding the PVC provider, it's made by Kyongin a Korean Company which produces high quality PVC, this material is used for Korean market boats and on the more pricy Chinese boat brands.

In the Asian market, the best & pricer sib/ribs are manufacture with Orca/Hypalon brand, the lesser priced boats with Taiwan PRG Hypalon, probably a cheaper, thinner version of the original Dupont coat ?

Boat builders are offering Hypalon alternatives to PVC, a matter of just inquiring about and willing to pay for the extra cost.

Happy Boating
