using Line X on tube set

I am new here, and new to ribs.
I was wondering, has anyone had any experience using LINE X on their tube set?

I got a quote from wing for 12k for a new set. Line x quoted $2200.
I have been searching the treads for this topic, but with no luck.

Also, what are your thought about using Line X on the interior.

The project is a 7M military Willard.

I can't see Line-X being flexible enough to use on the tubes. It could make a great deck treatment though, maybe on the console too.

Do not use Line-X.

I had one customer use a similar "flexible" bedliner.

Boat was junk. It cracked and came off in chunks. It would often rip off layers of hypalon with it, causing air leaks. It could not be removed to patch.

Use this instead : Inland Marine - Inflatable Boat Repair Products

If there are pinholes, patch them first. If there are seam leaks, I would advise using the internal latex sealant if you can.

Afterwards, spray the boat using their paint with an HVLP gun. Thin with water. Don't use a roller or goes on too thickly and looks blobby.

If you can patch the tubes to the point that they hold air, Wing will sell you their "Techthane" paint that they also use in house. If the tubes are bad enough, they will definitely extend the life.
