Tuff-Coat SRC

If you can Paint, you can restore your Inflatable Boat

Tuff-Coat’s Inflatable Boat Repair Kit is a two-stage synthetic rubber coating that fixes pinhole leaks, worn fabric, UV damage and even leaky seams.

Michael Fry, an avid boater, invented the waterproof, durable protective paint. His revolutionary product has made thousands of inflatable boats around the world shine like new again!

Better still, Fry states, “You don’t need to be a professional to apply this product. It goes on like paint, so now anyone can expertly restore an inflatable boat.”

That’s right, if you can paint, you can fix your inflatable for under $200! It’s that easy and inexpensive.

Fry invented Tuff-Coat’s Inflatable Boat Repair Kit when he saw a damaged inflatable, discarded by its owner on the dock where Fry moors his own 48-foot Grand Banks cabin cruiser. “It caught my eye. I wondered why its owner hadn’t repaired it?”

A little research by Fry dug up the answer. “There wasn’t a product good enough to make it worthwhile to fix the boat. It was too much hassle, and the results just weren’t that good.”

That was the just challenge the triple-threat entrepreneur, inventor and boater needed as motivation to create the solution.

“So I went to see a friend of mine, a very good chemist who I’d worked with on a previous successful venture,” says Fry. “It didn’t take too much consultation to come up with the solution – a marvelous product called TUFF-COAT SRC. This revolutionary synthetic rubber coating (SRC) now has boaters everywhere repairing their damaged inflatable boats and getting them back into the water.”

Thousands of satisfied customers agree. Testimonials on Fry’s website www.Tuff-Coat.com attest to the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of Tuff-Coat’s Inflatable Boat Repair Kit.

The manager of the Inflatable Repair Depot in Vancouver, Canada writes: “Over the years I have restored more than 1000 inflatable boats and have used every product available both commercially and from industrial supply. Nothing has come close to the Tuff Coat system for ease of use, product durability or value. It is the only thing I now use to restore PVC and Hypalon inflatable boats.”

Each repair kit contains two one-quart cans: one bottom-coat and one topcoat, which is enough to do an eight-foot dinghy. The topcoat even comes in five colors: gray, white, red, black and orange. A bigger inflatable obviously requires additional coverage, but the cost-savings created by restoring, renewing and protecting your investment certainly outweigh the money a boater would pay replacing that same inflatable. “You will spend hundreds instead of thousands of dollars,” notes Fry.

Tuff-Coat’s Inflatable Boat Repair Kit has done wonders on Avon, Bombard, Caribe, Quicksilver, Zodiac, SeaEagle and many other inflatable boats. It also works well with both Hypalon and PVC surfaces.

    Hi I’m busy restoring my 15ft inflatable with tuff coat. i was wondering when preparing the tubes for the primer coat. how far do i have to go into the old material? Do i go all the way to the base fabric, like the black hypalon?

      Hi Pieter – As long as the tubes have not been recoated all that is required is to rough the surface with a 3M pad or 200 grit sandpaper. Cheers Michael

    I have some difficulty (not with your product) sealing some damaged areas on a walker bay. The underlying fabric was damaged by UV due to the protective coating being removed and the dinghy left in the sun.

    I’ve now put something like 12 coats of base coat on (carefully prepping each layer, starting with thinned and then “full strength”) but I still get small bubbles forming in the base coat that eventually pop and then leak.

    I think I’d like to start all over (we all get smarter as we go, right)?

    What’s the best way to remove base coat so I can get back to something close to the base fabric?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Best regards,

    Seattle, WA

    I have a technical question on the Tuff coat product…
    Would that reinforce a “cheap” PVC internal bladder if painted with this product. Would the PVC become more resistant to tear and time / inflation?

    Examples of these cheap PVC bladder:



    Anyone has tried that before?
    Thanks a lot!

    TUFFCOAT No sorry Tuffcoat can restore but not change or add strength to a weak product.

    Would there be a problem with applying two coats of base and two coats of top coat?

    TUFFCOAT – no problem but keep the coats thin and make sure base is dry before topcoating
