I'm not knocking your favoured company i think Rodella do very good work I'm trying to save the OP from wasting a lot of time and money by thinking he can fix his tube problems by overpatching! Looking at the pics of your tubes it doesn't look like they were delaminating as much as being rubbed up the wrong way. And therefore overpatching would be easy in terms of adhesion and attractive if skillfully done, which your clearly were

Fixing the worn out bits is as you have good material to bond to. Can I ask were the Sun damage parts colour faded or could you remove the top layer of the hypalon and expose the weave by rubbing with your fingers Say 2 inches away from the fading.

Not an issue at all - I'm only reporting what I've had done on my boat, with what to me looks like similar damage in some areas.

Yes, the sun damaged areas were severely faded, and in many areas rubbing with fingers would peel off the top layer of blue. Can't say I measuered how far away from the fading I could rub off, but it all seemed fairly fragile, until you got to the dark blue areas where the tubes are clearly undamaged.

FWIW mine (pics on here somewhere - try the forth cruise / Easdale / Wheel 10 threads) was like that all over (but is also 10 years older then the OP's boat)

Previous owners (sailing club - it was a rescue boat) hypalon painted it, which seemed to work fine untiul the layer below the paint started to come off!

It was ver theraputinc peeling the paint off the toobs, but as more came off they started deflating faster! Ultimately, I need new toobs. I have toyed with a decently applied layer of Hypalon paint, but to do the whole boat is going to be approx 1/6 the cost of a re-toob (at the last costing), so I'm just saving for the re-toobing.

I reckon the paint on mine lasted 8-9 years, based on what the previous owner told me about the paint date (and it was more the material underneath coming off than the paint itself).
