Olly, if you paint it, do it the same colour because it does bruise off a bit. You can peel back the old patches with the gentle use of a hot air gun. Then you can replace them nicely. Polymarine will also sell you hypalon and 2402 adhesive.

Replace them with black patches and it just looks like a wear patch for people to sit on.

Hypalon is the fabric the tubes are made from.

I've used the polymarine paint in the past. Really Good. Make sure you use one of those mini gloss style rollers to apply - very quick and easy.
