hypalon paint vs liquid rubber and patching question

Has anyone had good luck repainting their hypalon boats w either? I see a product called liquid rubber from inland marine and several types of hypalon paint. I have an older Avon 310 that has seen better days. Also can you patch over the paint or liquid rubber? Last question is what's the best type of glue/adhesive to reattach the rubber bumper/molding strip that runs around the side of the boat?

Thx, Will

I suspect you won't be able to patch over the paint (whichever type you use.) You'll have to strip it down to the original outer coaing material, patch to that, and repaint. The bond between the paint and the original outer hypalon layer won't be strong enough.

For gluing the rubbing strake, hypalon glue is best, but regular contact cement works in a pinch (though it won't last too long.)
