The short answer is usually yes, but it does depend upon what the damage is and where. If you can supply pics it would help.

It's same repairing principle as in tubes, clean well area with mek, acetone, apply 2 part pcv or hypalon glue depending on your sib fabric and a proper round patch covering at least 1" passing cut, hole, abrassion, whatever. Flatten patch with back of big spoon, let dry and voila!!

Happy Boating

Yes dropthread Inflatable floors can be repaired although you need to be carefull not to damage threads or this balloons up. Same method as tubes.

Most things are possible as long as not too many of the cross fibres have been damaged.

Have a look at half way down the linked page of the thread below.
This airdeck also received several standard style patches on the flat surfaces and has stood up well to the high pressure the deck runs at.
