Can I repair my own boat?
An inflatable boat owner can attempt small repairs if the factory gluing instructions are followed closely. Keep in mind that the glue’s bond strength drops rapidly with heat or high humidity. Take your boat indoors. Gluing on a dock, near the water, on a rainy day, or in direct sunlight with compromise your repair. We sell Hypalon, PVC, glue and other repair items and tools.
Rips and holes larger than one inch in the air chambers, or those within two inches of a seam should be repaired with internal and external patches by a professional repair technician at a certified repair facility. A quick patch repair by the user may provide a temporary fix until you can have it professionally serviced for long-term use.
Inflatable boats are made of Hypalon or PVC. Hypalon is one of the most popular types of materials used in inflatable boat manufacture. Hypalon is more expensive than PVC, but last longer , being more resilient to UV damage, abrasions, gas, and oil. Both Hypalon and PVC inflatable boats can be repaired and restored with adhesive.
