Having said that, based on the other paint job(s) that's not necessarily a recommendation, but it is stuck like the proverbail to a blanket, and no weed.......

Yep. I just use International's Cruiser UNO on my tubes. Navy blue is exactly the same colour as the tubes. Sticks ok and keeps growth off.

It's not particularly flexible, so can be scraped off a soft tube with a wooden scraper, though it's not easy.

i explain to neverous first time passengers that a rib will still float if filled with water from a large wave breaking over the bow etc - most all rigid boats would be sinking in that event. bow rider sports boats strike me as being the worst design of boat in heavy seas, but then again, in heavy seas all you ever see are ribs! maybe thats why?
