I've got an older Riken as well. It's my intention to take it to Inflatable Boat Works and have them spray on a Uruthane under layer and chafe pad. I"m a guide, and some of our older boats have a spray coating on the bottom and it's tough, and looks cool. Seems to be a good way to squeeze an extra season or two out of commercial boats, so it'll definately work for me.
