Paint-Specific Advice

I’m planning to paint my older inflatable. Can I use any rubber-based paint?
No, you cannot. Most inflatables are built of the same fabric, but some are PVC coated and some are hypalon coated. Make sure any paint you use is compatible with the coating on your particular boat. The printed material on the can should clearly state whether the paint is compatible with PVC or hypalon.
