Hypalone

Where can I get a yard or two of Hypalone here in the states?

I am trying to repair tubes on a Searider 6m.

I am also looking for replacment "Drain Socks". I believe 4in. diameter.

NRS sells 1100d and 1600d hypalon.

Sorry, just noticed question 2. What are drain socks? Elephant trunks? If so, probably easiest to make up your own.

Drain Socks is what they are refered to in the SR6 manual.

The two colapsable Hoses/tubes that are used to siphon the water on the deck of the SR6.

I would love to make my own if I could only find a source for 4" colapsable hose in short lengths.

Not even my local fire departments have 4" hose of this nature.

I checked an idustrial supply house and they wanted several hundred dollars for the smallest amount. I don't need anything that can handle pressure like I am finding.

What Mr. Tilley said.

Take a rectangular piece of hypalon pi times diameter of your scuppers (plus a bit for a seam) by however long you want them, glue it up, and hose clamp it on (or glue it, if you wish.)

4 inch diameter scuppers would yield a circumference of 12.56", add an inch or so for the overlap at the seam, and make it as long as you need in the other direction.

I think the 1600 is considered the commercial weight; 1100 the consumer weight fabric. Your trunks (or socks, as you call them) could probably do with the lighter fabric. It's not like they're going to see a lot of abuse.

Remember, the supplier I pointed you to is into river sports: rafts, inflatable kayaks, even fishing tubes. They probably make a lot of stuff where finished weight is as important or more important than being bulletproof.
