Blown seams

Is my Yam 360s nearing the end? The plasticizing is failing in a few places. I put 3 psi in the tubes and in this hot weather the seam has blown in 3 places in the bow.
I have also discovered one of the baffles is blown.
Seemingly a seam repair involves forcing glue into the seam.
Is it worth buying the more expensive two part glue?

Yes definitively, much better and stronger than one part quick repair glue. In summer you should inflate Sib much less say 2.5 PSI and don't leave Sib out of water resting on hot surfaces as sand beaches, concrete floors.

Happy Boating

I reglued the seam leaks and it seems to be holding air. Maybe life in the old Yam yet
