I would use a micro-torch. Same thing I do for rubber style drysuit zippers, as they frey.

My connection at the local inflatable boat shop suggested cutting the fraying threads back. The more they flop around in the water the more they continue to fray. I guess you could try to seal off with a touch of inflatable boat paint if you wanted to try to seal the fraying.

Strange I dont get any freying at the waterline, only the inside of the boat tubes.
