    I have also though about rivets as well.

    Why not just beat the crap out of the $150 canoe you have and when it's in too bad a shape, scrap it for $50 and buy another one.

    I thought about that. BUT if I can help prevent it finally taking a dump on me 3 miles from the launch I would like to mitigate that. So if I can find a way to help protect the bottom on the cheap then it’s worth it to me.

    This. I'd bolt it about every 6-8" and seal each one with 5200. If that doesn't seal it there's nothing out there that will. I think the UHMW is the best solution and should work quite well.
