reviving old tubes

14 year old tubes with extensive spider cracks on the upper sponsons, but no leaks. They are tired on this 14.5ft Novurania. I am considering Gluvit a rubberised epoxy by Travaco that can be rolled or brushed on, that dries tough and flexible. I would add red colorant and repaint after. Has anyone tried any reconditioner/ revitaliser treatment on tired tubes such as this method? Am I wasting my time? I'm reluctant to spend $3000 for tubes. Also where do I get fiberglass center consoles of a small size to fit this vessel? Thanks
