My Sportspal boat is starting to get older and need some preventive measures.
The rubberized stuff which covers the edges, seams and screws needs to be reapplied.
Does anyone knows what stuff do they use in manufacturing? I contacted them and asked but got no answers.
Thy sell a repair kit which seems to have Adthane Polyurethane Sealant in it. I could not find this product on sale anywhere.

May be I can use other polyurethane sealant, but I have no experience with this stuff and don't know which one is better.
I consider even use something like Roof Repair product but I'm afraid this stuff wont dry out and will remain sticky for long time.
Would appreciate any suggestion.
Thanks.

Do you ever get to North Bay? I understand they will refurb your whole boat for a couple hundred.

No, I'm in GTA, never been in North Bay.
I don't think it is worth to. I'm planning to refurnish it for a couple of dozens bucks, not more. There is not much to do: re-cover the worn off sealant, seal a couple of slits in the plywood with epoxy.... and it will be almost as new.
Thanks for suggestion anyway!

Ya probably not worth it then. Iíve heard guys that have done it thought they got a new boat when it came out of the factory refurb, complete with new paint, foam and sponsons, but no need for a beating around rig! Good luck, Iím sure 3M will do the job.
