Should I restore or replace my inflatable boat?

It's a common question we get asked.  Repairing a leaking inflatable boat involves patching – using a patch kit and glue. Restoring is refinishing the inflatable fabric (usually hypalon or PVC).  The confusion often arises because the restoring the fabric also solves the air leaks cuased by the tiny pinholes in the fabric. We see this damage in tubes that have suffered wear and tear OR by extreme UV damage.

Best to think about REPAIRing when you have a major leak from a single source (hole, tear, seam-rip, valve stem, old patch, etc). Best to think about RESTORing when you have fabric wear/tear, UV damage, etc.

Final note. Repair major leaks first before you begin restoring your inflatable boat.

If you can paint, you can use our inflatable boat paint

In order to restore your inflatable boat, you don’t have to know anything about a whole lot of stuff, except how to paint.  Applying Tuff Coat is that simple. Of course, you have to prepare your surface first, making sure it’s clean. But that’s no big deal. Using Tuff-Coat, almost anyone can take a worn inflatable hypalon boat and make it look like new again.  Read our customer testimonials to learn how some have saved their boat and their money.


Save thousands of dollars!

Painting your dinghy can restore virtually any kind of damage your hypalon inflatable boat may have suffered. Now you may think that a product that unique, and that good, must be very expensive.  But guess what…it costs you a fraction of what it would cost to buy a new inflatable boat. Sure, you could go out and buy one of those great new Zodiac inflatable boats, or Bombard tenders, or Avon RIBs, but you don’t want to take out a bank loan, or go into debt, just to enjoy your life. Enjoying life shouldn’t be expensive. And it doesn’t have to be!


Is it easy to use? Will I save money?

Simply paint it on over your existing material to restore the hypalon or pvc , then apply the topcoat  over the basecoat to add additional protection as well as a beautiful finish. The coating applies directly on and bonds with your existing material, fixes pinhole leaks, covers exposed and worn fabric and protects from harmful UV damage. Renew your old deteriorating inflatable into a new looking rugged air tight boat and save thousands of dollars.

Our paint has done wonders on Zodiac, Avon, Bombard, Caribe, Quicksilver and dozens of other inflatable boat brands and models. Add years of pleasure to your investment  and save money.
