What about using that liquid liner stuff you poor into a tuber and it lines it from the inside?

When you say expensive, like half the price of the boat to replace the floor?
If you use liquid sealer in the floor it will reck it, Nasher did a very good repair on his air floor

I have just priced up a new floor for my Futura Mk3 at 1500 !!

Even if its on the curve, as long as you can see it, its an easy fix. The liquid PVC stuff does work as well, but I'm not a big fan.

My FR has 1 or 2 repairs lol, but it holds air perfectly.

flap that, the boat, trailer and 2006 30hp is less than the new floor lol.

ok i would want to do a good job of it. i have some patch material and glue from my old zodiac, its bostik clear bond. came as a patch kit. will that do? any tips on moulding the patch too the curved area. i think pulling it tight wont work as it will just pull the glue. what about gluing the patch to one side, letting it dry, then pulling it tight over the curve whilst gluing.

Your brand names are different to ours, but the glue needs to be PVC 2 part adhesive and it is made by Bostick. Doing the repair in stages is a good way to do it, it allows you to put enough pressure on the patch.

its the stuff the local boat shop sells for zodiac patches. its a tube, just one clear glue.

good to know the idea about doing in stages is a good idea. could be tricky finding the holes, but i guess i just do the dishwash soap spray bottle trick?

no patches on the pontoons.

i think its older than i first thought. maybe early 90s hull.

.
Single part glue should only be used for short term emergency repairs, it wont hold a floor patch for long.

Everywhere I have seen the 2 part glue, its in the same packaging, just different brand and graphics. This is what it looks like.









etc.
