Just wondering if its worth a shot? as I can get 16oz for 8 quid (just found a place that sells it).

Does this stuff solidify as Im guessing as if it doesnt work I can always get some rib sealant.

I found this site Just as good as the other repair fluid you recommened?

-----------------

UPDATE

Just watched on youtube reguarding slime it seems it remains liquid inside the tyre, is this how the RIB tube sealant works or does that dry up?

The Slime initially does not go hard when it seals the leak but it does eventually dry up as the fluid evaporates and would probably disintegrate. Its not made to be a long term solution to an air leak, its also very critical to get the right amount of solid/fibres/fluid in to the leak. The other problem you may have if you try it and it fails you wlll have to remove the slime before trying an adhesive based product.
My opinion only!
Mike.

If by seam leaks you mean the glued tube seams are starting to go then this will continue to happen in other places. Even for river use I'd not bother, nothing worse than turning up to launch somewhere and finding it's gone in another area.

Describe honestly on Ebay and start at 99p taking whatever you get.

Also, if you inflate/deflate the boat what will happen to all that slime/goo when the boat is rolled up and then you come to inflate it again?

As said, it doesn't go solid for a long time, the excess will just slosh around and potentially cause other problems...

Why not buy the stuff designed for the job?

how slime works it has micro fibers that block the hole not a glue the idea of the poly marine stuff is it covers the whole of the inside of the tube giving a layer inside but if you put slime in thats the end as you wont get it clean again as fenlander says if the seams are going and not punctures bin it but cut off any bits you can use on the new boat see gurnards thread FRIB where he did that with a sea-go sib
