what to use on your tube...protectant

I have a cataraft, it does not leak one bit, but have noticed a couple small scratches, not deep enough to cause it to leak. I want to be proactive and put something on it before it were to get any worse. What would be a good product to put on it.

This is what I did on the bottom of my raft. Will work on the tube as well. Hope this helps.

Once you open that tube of Aquaseal, the remainder will harden in a few weeks/months unless you store it in your freezer. When you need to use again, just let it come up to ambient temp for a few hours before applying. I've taken the same tube on several trips using this method, and kept it over a year with no effects. Great stuff for fixing pinholes in river bags and lots of other uses as well. If you use the Cotol accelerator, mix well and apply within 10-15 minutes, you can feel the heat come off it as it cures. Good stuff!
