Looks great so you used the spay and not the paint on type?

Dan,

Just checking in to see how this mod is holding up for you.  I would like to do this on my brand new Cumberland float tube along with UV protectant before I launch this baby in the water next week.

Thanks,

Hai

I need to scrape off and replace the flex seal twice per year because after a season of expansion and contraction, the rubber spray begins to crack and separates from the fabric of the tube.

Personally, I wouldn’t waste your $ money on UV protection for the tube.

Just my 2-cents

Dan,

So you don't see any fading of the fabric over time due to the Sun exposure?

Yes the colors do fad a bit.
It seems to be an important issue for you, so I say go ahead and put UV protection on if that’s what you want to do.
After all ... it is your float tube.
I’ve heard of people having tubes for 3 to 5 years and the biggest concerns have been the zippers and the stitches failing.

Dan,

If it's not an issue I will not waste my money, just want to see what the feedback are with people who have the float tube for awhile and are actively using it. I've finished my Flex Seal modification per your recommendations.

Thanks,

Hai

I found that the Flex Seal last longer if I leave my float tube inflated at the same constant pressure without it going through the expansion and contraction as in deflating and then be re-inflating it again.

One of the things that I have tried myself and I’ve also heard of other people saying they’ve tried is to use a zipper lubricant on all of your pocket’s zippers and your bladder’s zippers.

It will help your zippers to last longer and try not to over stuff your pockets by causing a lot of pulling pressure on your zippers.

I agree with Dan on the zippers for the Cumberland. Don't over stuff and use something to lubricate. I am five years into my Cumberland and the biggest issue is the zippers. I has faded quite a bit and I changed out the Boston valves 2 years ago. No punctures from fish or otherwise, but I did need to re-sow the seams at the front twice. Their customer service is outstanding if you need it.
