sliming a raft?

I have an older 13' boat tubes are bomber floor is not lots of cracks and porosity and have heard people talk about sliming tubes to help with these issues. my question is what products are available for doing so and what experience anyone has had with doing this. floor is pvc by the way. tubes are not.

A drop stich floor has a million little threads in it holding it together. I think all the manufacturers of internal sealants say not to use them on drop stitch floors because the goo will gum up all those threads.

NRS sells an internal sealant called flex seal, but once again, seems like it would glue all those threads together.

Maybe an external urethane coating applied to the floor uninflated would help.
