I used the System 6 to repair an old NRS boat recently and have had good luck with it so far. Check out https://rivergear.com/raft-repair-solutions/

They have been in business since 1983 and have many options and information on their web site.

I am not an official Maravia warranty center.

I Have worked on a ton of Maravias though.

Wow your boat looks great did you have any issues working with the system 6 product? Knowing what you no now would you do anything different or any pro tips for folks taking on this project.

Not really other than watching the very thorough you-tube video that Rivergear has on their site, but there is a bit of a learning curve when applying it which was done with a roller. There is also a short window in which it needs to be reapplied to add multiple coats and a good respirator is also needed. This boat had about 35 hours in it with meticulous prep as there was major sun damage and the application of the System 6.

So far it has been working pretty well and the boat holds air OK. It would have been going to the land fill otherwise due to the major sun damage although the SB floor looks brand new and holds air great. I got the old 1993 NRS 10.5 boat for $75 and another $50 for one of the thwarts that had been replaced. The System 6 cost $300 for a gallon of which we used about 3/4 of the product so I have about $425 plus labor in the boat. Hope that helps.

Nice work. That really points out the importance of prep on urethane jobs.

Dude has 35 hours into his project!

I think you should consider Man of Rubber's system 6. Gary & Beth Harper can help you out, the instructions are on their web page and comes with the kit, you should order PVC primer as well as color. Having used both on repairs I prefer the System 6 over Maravia's urethane.

That looks REALLY GOOD, I'm not sure I could pull off the same project with similar results. Awesome job!

Makes me wish you could lineX a boat.

You can do it yourself, just be patient and follow directions, just so you know it will take a few coats to do it correctly

Moving forward on this project my boat is 2 years old Aire told me if I coat the bottom with urethane that section will no longer be covered under warranty. I would hate to give up the remaining 8 years it would be covered because I wanted to do preventitive maintanace and make my boat more resistive to abrasion?
