Rib/Rubing Repair...

Hi all. I just picked up a 15' Novurania RIB with a 55hp yamaha as a second boat...
It needs some work on the tubes though...and possible the valves...

The bottom of the tubes are patched up quite a bit and two sections have slow leaks in them. I looked into getting new tubes and the price was more than I paid for the boat itself????

I found a product called Tuff-Coat. Is anyone familiar with this or has anyone used it?
From what I read, it is a 2 stage "liquid rubber that vulcanizes itself to the original hypalon and the second coat acts as a paint...

Also, where would I be able to get replacement valves.

Or recommendations for another product.

I am in the U.S. in Ohio if that matters.

Thanks in advance. I am hoping to get this thing restored and looking good!

Kind of depends on what valves it has.

Man of Rubber (yeah, I know; sounds like it should be in San Francisco, but it's in Tennessee or something like that) has quick service and a fair selection of valves; NRS has a pretty good selection as well.

I have used Tuff Coat and was very pleased. It will seal pin hole leaks. A lot of work though for the preparation.

thanks.

The previous owner had it painted with something or another...I imagine that this will need to be removed somehow before applying tuff coat?

I think there is a instructional article on the Tuff Coat web site that describes
preparation and painting of an already painted boat.

All of the items and more you are looking for, can be found here: http://defender.com search the on line catalogue or email them. There is a interior tube sealer, for sealing small tube holes and porosity, works well.

Happy Boating
