Sorry if this is a re-post... I did a search and didn't find anything.
Apparently DuPont is discontinuing production of Hypalon.
Is another manufacturer going to start making it? I know that it's trademarked by DuPont, but not sure when that runs out. Could mean some big changes in the rafting industry, eh?

Update as 10/16/2009
Since the announcement on 5/7/2009 to exit from the Hypalon® business, DuPont Performance Elastomers has worked with its customers to assess their Hypalon® material needs to support them through the transition. As a result of this assessment, DPE has determined that the plant will most likely run through the first quarter 2010 in order to safely produce quality material to satisfy customer requests.
