    Well i got a little 9.5 ft basshound and have used it a lot this summer but i have noticed that the hull has started to wear away a little from it sliding on the tailgate when loading unloading. it is one of those light weight plastic jon boats. i tried rubberized spray paint but that wore off and apparently roll on bed liners do not stick to plastic very well. any other ideas out there?
