I undestand that the Rib Shop ceased selling Polymarine because they were not happy with the result!

Inflatable Boat Supplies (IBS) sell some decent grey hypalon paint. Online ordering but noit cheap.

The new Polymarine flexithane is rubbish.

Hi Jo, we get great results with the Topside products and shipping to Lisboa is not a problem.

Don't paint unless you really really need to!

Yes, and in that vein, what's the best for removing tube paint?

No - entirely new hypalon tubes!

Once you apply the paint you are pretty committed to keeping painting them every time it starts to wear.

Getting off would be a nightmare job!

Not entirely serious so wish to let you off the hook

However I do admire your understanding in not telling me what an "ass" I was in asking such an inane question!!!!
