    Give the folks at Alaska Raft and Kayak a call. They can set you up with a really tough urethane coating.

    Yes, eurathane is the way to go. Just make sure that it is installed after thorough and proper sanding and priming - - that is the only way it should be done.

    I would also check with Brian over at Alaska Raft Connection. Very knowledgeable guy who does great work.

    Dannys does it, I looked into it for my raft after seeing a raft at the boat show with the rhino hide looking stuff on it.

    I had Dannys do my 18' Achilles this last spring. Great job and turnaround. I believe a 16' up to the rub strakes would be in the $1000-1300 range. The stuff is tuff and very slick. Definitely slides onto my trailer easier than before. If youd like to take a look at mine let me know.
