Wear strip on bottom of tubes New NRS IK

So I ordered a NRS Outlaw inflatable kayak. It's pvc and I want to glue wear strips on the bottom of the tubes. Looking for recommendations for material and adhesive. Always had hypalon gear in the past. Thanks

Aire PVC kayak material...

AIRE PVC Kayak Material at

I own some of this fabric and it's relatively light and supple compared to most PVC rafts, but still seems plenty durable. The nice thing about this material is that it's sold by the foot, so you could order longer continuous sections. I've used it only for shoring up wear spots, but that seems appropriate from what you want to do.

Also, from what I've heard, urathane can be glued to PVC with Clifton Urathane Adhesive. The only issue is that NRS seems to be selling their urathane material in smaller chunks rather than off rolls... maybe they can sell you a longer piece if you try?

PVC of your choice and Stabond or Clifton urethane glue. DRE will sell you PVC off the 5' wide roll by the foot or in any size you want by the square foot.

I'm curious about what you think about the Outlaw? I have not seen any reviews about the boat. What are your thoughts?

Back ordered wont see it till mid late june. CKS has a few rentals I looked over. With the low snowpack I figure I'll get more time on the water if I have one.

My buddy just bought a 2012 used twice. It's super light. He just started boating and ran it through some class 3 (yankee jim) with out problems. Sitting next to a Linx II it was about the same dimension. The material seems really thin in comparison but I can't comment on how tough it is.
