Paint problem

Hi!

I've got my hands on this 5 meter russian manufactured Mnew & co rib boat, but it has been badly kept (in rain, cold & sunlight i presume?) and the pontoons have lost their colour and whole boat looks like a crap Otherwise it is great boat and all hard parts of the boat are in exellent condition.

So.. What kind of paint should I use? I've seen people mention Polymarine paints, but I cant find it around here. What are the main characterics for the paint i should use?

-J

What are the tubes made of? If it is Hypalon you can clean them quite easily - they will loook as good as new. Use something like Traffic film remover or even washing powder and a soft brush/sponge - do a test area first.
