Look forward to seeing that, you don't see too many urethane aire boats. I believe they are using the same supplier as sotar on the urethane. There aren't too many places to get it, we source from 2. Sotars urethane on sharp stuff will gets slices down to the scrim if you run in the rocks much as well, the liquid lex is pretty much useless, go for a material chafe. I prefer the encapsulated urethane my self, and they weigh damn close to the Sotars. Alot more Sotars get slices than you hear about, Sotarians are pretty good about keeping it quiet. I have seen a couple blown aire boats on the river as well. I think in general it is pretty uncommon across the board anymore.
The old stop sign seems to snag more than a few boats stacked on trailers every year
I have been working on CADding a cool new piece of river equipment , I will sent you a pic when it is finished Todd, you can tell me what you think
