I bought my materials from IT and resprayed my 14 foot Maravia 10 years ago in my garage. It still looks beautiful granted it hasn't seen more than 30 river days. Lots of prep work of course and a short window to mix and spray before the material sets up. I'm in ft Collins and would gladly provide shop space to help you out.

Thanks to "The Boat People" for determining that I must have mistreated my Hyside - I've only been boating a few years....

Actually, the urethane that Hyside was using at the time was less than optimal. They've since switched to better stuff. It was progressively delaminating and I had it repaired at a Hyside-authorized repair center. However, it continued to delaminate until I had IT just totally re-do the urethane. No problems since. Hyside quality is generally top-notch, but as people have noted on this thread, unless your prep is absolutely immaculate, you may have undesirable results.

They didn't do urethane for me, they repaired a blowed I-beam.
So far, seems like a fine repair, no complaints. Shared some expertise and advice with me, too.

My experience with them was probably the exception, but they really took a long time to getting around to working on my boat. I mean, months. I was fine without it, but until I started bugging them, and they asked me for "When do I ABSOLUTELY HAVE to have it?", they never even started on it. But, once I did that, they gave me a schedule, and actually delivered ahead of schedule.

For what it's worth.
