bought an old boat, what to do now?

So, I went out and bought a 10 year old used commercial PVC Maravia. The rubber on the tops of the tubes is dull and chalky. Should I just 303 it and call it good? I understand that you can put new coats of urethane on boats to give them extended life. Should I do that? Seems like i could drop $300 on urethane and not cover the entire boat. At what point do I need to do something? Also, the outfitters name is on the side of the boat in urethane letters. Is there any way to get it off or do i just have to paint urethane over it? Thanks!

I'd call Maravia and see what they recommend. I bet they would help out with some advice.
