1. I'll check it out. Also good for cleaning or should I use a different product for cleaning. Just soap and water perhaps?
2. Yes, there is excess patch glue as well as duck tape residue etc.
3. Great thanks. I'm just looking to cover smaller spots where it has worn through to the fabric.
4. All the D-rings had at some point a black rubber/paint coating on them but has since worn off. I wonder if they used Plasti-Dip or something similar? I will take a picture so you can see for your self.
6. I have a local dealer which I am sure I will frequent regularly but I have found very few places online that sell parts for these boats. Ebay doesn't even have that many parts.
8. See photos. I would like to replace/rebuild the Transom. Is it possible to source new identification plates?

Search on this site for alot of helpful info.
1: 303 aerospace protectant
2:Glue from hypalon repairs, or leftover from old lettering etc?
3: I wouldnt use paint. Look at a product called tuff coat. It is a refurbishing product that im sure you could just use to touchup the hypalon
4: D rings are not generally painted. They should be stainless which requires exposure to oxygen to not rust
5: Water and soap
6: There are a few reputable dealers around, but they'll cost a pretty penny. Look on ebay etc for cheaper stuff.
7: custom made to support speed tubes and ESPECIALLY the transom. Or a flat utility trailer long enough to support transom.
8: Need to be more specific
9: yes, source parts online. If you need to bite the bullet and order from a dealer, there are a bunch around
10: Any marine paint designed for wood. There are a few ways to make it non slip- add sand into the paint, etc. Search this site. Flowcoat should come up in alot of the conversations here but might be hard to source in the US.
Post some pics to see what we're dealing with.
