So sibbers (and wee ribbers I guess) I had a problem. In fact, I've had it twice. I've arrived at the slip and discovered a small hole in my SIB tubes. I mean a tiny 1mm hole that would be a damn shame to enlarge for a clamshell, but it's enough to need an instant fix.
First time I didn't have my repair kit to hand (don't ask!
) but second time I did. The kit is the standard issue job with patches and a tube of Bostik. This totally failed to stick and I need to sort a better kit.
I think the main issue was that the SIB was cleaned with "wash and wax" after each use. And it's piggin'
I guess I should carry some fine sandpaper and/or some solvent? Anyone got a good idea for a wee MEK bottle? Does it dissolve most plastics?
I'm a good patcher once I have the needful - I've done several very neat and durable patches under controlled conditions, but I'm thinking more of the running repair type situation.
