I have used the nrs site to order a few things like hypalon and grab handles, they ship stuff very quickly and prices are pretty good.

Please post the results of your use of the glue as I need some for re-attaching pvc rub strakes that have "departed" from the tubes at the cone end. Tempted to use Gorilla Glue available at the local ACE hardware. It is polyurathane and is low cost in small quantities.
Thanks T.

are you gluing the pvc to pvc or hypalon? Dont go the cheap way. You have a new project now. If you search good you can find good prices on the glue you need. I have seen the gorilla glue you mean and even thought of buying it for an old inflatable. I always worried that if it doesnt work good it will be a lot of work to clean it again for the proper glue. I spent almost $50 but it was for a large can plus the activater. I will have enough for any project I need for the shelf life of the glue. You dont even need that much. there are plenty of links on this thread alone. And I will post pics of the repairs . Just the other day I found a link on here that had a huge amount of info on repairs. Little tricks that made so much sence like using a can to roll up the patches if they are long, useing tape and other helpfull ideas. If I find it Ill try to post it here.

PVC strake to hypalon. I can buy the 2 part from West marine who have a store about 20 miles away. I have seen the same link with the tips for gluing and like yourself cannot remember where it is. I think I will take your advice and splash out for the two part from West Marine.
Thanks T.

thares a shop in Cal, they make a vary ausome glue, 10years, thousands of patches, never failed. Stabond, remember you are not gluing, more like taping,
if you try to stickit before the glue sets up, you are Makin a mess and it will show.

wanted to give an update of my repair, I bought the clifton glue and it worked great, very easy to use, I had a perfect day, perfect temp no humidity. My worry about the patch was when I started to peel back the patch I tried to be very carefull and used a hairdryer but as I did I noticed that the rubber started to peel off and exposed the threads. I decided not to go any further and start from there. I came across 2 problems that I had to deal with. One was that where the patch was it was very hard to get the fabric flat enough for a good patch. Because of how thick the tube is in the front and all the extra layers of material it was tough. Because I had a bow lockr up front I at least had a nice flat surface to start with. After playing around with some blocks of wood I was ablbe to get it preety flat but it did not want to stay like this. I was afraid that when I went to stick the patch it would move on me and cause problems. I took care of this by usinf a couple of small bar clamps to flatten the tube and prevent it from mooving. Now that I had a nice surface I had to deal with the other problem....

I will try to show some pics to help explain this. The patch is one already on there and it did not seperated evenly. It was loose on the top and also on the bottom while along the center it was still attached. After a few long moments of banging my head against the wall I came up with using a small pair of vice grips to hold the two halves of the patch together then tied the vice grips to a handle on my tube to hold apart while I apply the glue. This kept the patch at a perfect spot for me and when it came time to apply it was very easy. I took my time and rolled out the patch as described in so many threads on this sight. The boat hold air now indefinately. If anyone has any problems like this and needs any info I would be glad to answer any questions and help in any way
