Hi all i am a new chap in the world of Ribs and the like and i am rebuilding a GRP cruiser, so not this forum related so i wont go into that here, but it will be in a way as i will be wanting an inflatable soon to use as a tender. but in the mean time i need a little help with this idea i have.
As i have never messed with rubber dinghy`s in anyway i am not sure how good the glues used are for repairs, or if they will be good enough for the small project i have in mind.
The idea i to get an old rubber dinghy and cut away the side tubes of around 24 inch long and 18-24 inch diameter, with the handles in the middle still attached, and then make into inflatable tubes by capping off the ends, this is where i am unsure of what if any glue to use and which is best for the type of rubber its made from ?. Is the glue good enough to hold such a patch?
There will be lines fitted to the tubes for inflation and deflation also in the modding.
This is a way i am looking in to sorting some as to getting some made to order as they will be very expensive, and finding it difficult to find what i need already made, unless anybody can point me in the right direction.
