Raft Paint

Anybody out there know where I can get some rubberized paint? NRS used to sell it but not anymore. I recently purchased a used raft and wanted to remove the outfitters name. Any other ideas for removing the name besides painting?

I recently got a raft from an outfitter and had to remove the name. I spent about 3 hours with MEK and was able to remove the name for under $75.00. I thought about painting the side but long term, removing the name will be better. Or take it to a raft repair shop and pay them to do it, a friend did this with his raft and paid close to $250.00. Good luck

Coming from Utah, do you have a Maravia from Holliday? They really lay their paint on thick.

Thanks for the info. I guess I have my work cut out for me with lots of elbow grease. The boat was from Sherri Griffith and the name is on there 4 fricking times. Maybe it would be easier to just change my name :>{)

DIB (dibboats.com) has hypalon paint for around $80 a gallon. There is also a $40 hazardous materials shipping charge, unfortunately.

buoy paint or colored duct tape that you put on and then use a hair dryer to get really stuck.

go with the MEK. it cuts thru hypalon paint way better than toluene. just make sure you got tons of rags/paper towels.

MEK is super toxic tho (as is toluene i assume). use a respirator and gloves, and don't do it indoors. good luck. with all that writing on it it could take a while!!
