I recently acquired an older C5 (wooden keel and transom, wood and aluminum floor) for repair.
I have used the search function but didn't find exactly what I was looking for.
The floor fabric has detached from the nose at the glue seam. I've concluded that the material is PVC, and I'll need to use MEK, 2 part adhesive, humidity and temperature controlled room, etc but I am unclear on whether the tubes should be inflated when gluing the floor back, whether the glue will hold the new seam in place while drying or should it be "clamped"?
Maybe the first question should be is it worth a repair. Assuming it is repairable I'd probably have $200 USD into it after the repair.
Any thoughts, tips, pics and or links would be appreciated.
What was used to treat the boat in this link after the repairs?
