Zodiac restoration project
this is my first post here. I'm new to the, inflatable boat world. a friend took me out last summer and I got the bug. So as soon as it started to warm up I started looking for a boat of my own.
I just purchased a what i believe to be a 1977 model Zodiac GR MK3. the plate on back says model 3463 and serial number ending M77B. If anyone can confirm I'm interpreting that right that would be great.
The boat has seen better days but I got it cheap. I have been researching different ways to restore the boat and read tons of threads here on this forum. If I missed one that addressed this already, my apologies.
my question is.... thoughts and opinions on re-covering the tubes with a new layer of hypalon? I plan to find and patch any holes in the existing tubes (found two already) and then cover the tube with a new layer of hypalon. Essentially just a huge patch.
This will be cheaper than tuff-coat or like options and provide an extra layer of protection on the original tubes As well as making them look like new.
Has anyone tried this?
