Repairing tube scratches or... protecting against

Hi is there a product out there that is good at repairing tube scratches for Zodiac boats? The scrach I got basically removed a good portion of the first rubber layer and got right to the mesh. (the material according to the Zodiac manual has three layers, one mesh sandwiched between two rubber ones)

Or is there some sort of band that one can apply to the bottom part of the tub where a scratch is likely to occur?

Please help!

Nick

PVC material can most likely be filled using a urethane adhesive. Probably need to squeegee the material in, and use something like teflon tape (easily removable) to keep it somewhat level within the gouge.

What colour is the boat?

If it's white or black you could try using a tiny bit of sikaflex just to fill it and smooth it over. I've done this successfully on black rubbing strake which got a bit ripped out of it.
