Anyone know if there's a paint suitable for use on a Helios II? I contacted the manufacturer and was told to Google it... I did that but found a lot of confusion!
I'm after painting some lettering on to both sides of the boat... :)

Thanks
Mike

Hypalon paint is the stuff you want I think http://polymarineshop.com/flexible-pain ... aints.html

Gumotexes are made from nitrilon which is a rubber based material that's pretty similar to hypalon. If you're unsure, email the guys at Innova in the US (the brand name for G'tex over there) and i'm sure they'll be able to help http://www.innovakayak.com.

I've found that there's sometimes an understandable bit of confusion when you email the factory in the Czech Republic - they speak good English but sometimes don't quite get your point

Thank you!! :)
I'll follow your link and get something on order...
Han't thought about the language barrier in Cz Rep, I'll be sure to contact the US guys for anything in future.

Thanks again :)
