Hello.

Hi

Newbie to this forum and indeed to boating.

Im a river type person so no sea journeys for me. In particular I visit the broads twice a year for a holiday. I decided to get myself a SIB and small outboard for the purpose of pottering around when we are moored "offshore"

I managed to get a "Cracking" deal

1 Honda 2011 2.3D outboard
1 Jilong Zray IV 300 boat (one minor repair)
4 Adult Seago Auto 175 Lifejackets (1 was brand new unopened)
2 Child Seago Auto Lifejackets
2 Euro XM Quickfit Auto Lifejackets
3 Brand New Adult Sea Pro Lifejackets

All for 300! yes 300

The outboard didnt run (carb clean 40 fixed this) but now runs sweet

I just sold all of the jackets on ebay (except 2 of the sea pros and 1 child seago) for 230 so was chuffed with the end result.

Can any one see any issues with the boat and outboard i have, as I said there will be no inshore expeds all trips will be on the Medway or the Broads.

I have a Honwave T20 (real honda!) but it has 5 seam leaks - not sure on the repair have watched a few vids on youtube but it looks pretty simple to fix.

Looking for approval or concerns and should i fix the T20 or bin it, i do like the Jilong Zray IV as it has a inflatable keel.

Didnt think of that, i was going to glue the seams! - What about tyre sealant ? would this be as effective, it seems that I will have to use quite a bit of this internal sealer so would it be a viable purchase as Im guessing the T20 is worth about 150 ish??

TIA

For 2 m boat one tin 500 ml share it between tubes make sure you work it over the leaks by lifting and lowering on its edge then throw it around the lawn get the kids to help when your satisfied change the air a couple of times to aid cure, make sure you clean the valves.
It should tell you on the tin it's a very long time since I did it.
Cheers

Have a look at tear aid then around a tenner if it's not leaking it will sell if only to a ribber instead of beaching the rib put it on hear open to offers see how it goes the remaining tear aid keep for the new boat.

Take some pictures of your seam leaks with the boat fully inflated?

If they're minor, the internal sealant will fix them. If they're caused by ungluing, then the internal sealant will not work.

Will do that tomorrow. Found seven leaks. 2 on the valves 5 on seams.

I did read elsewhere that slime inner tube repair was really good, its only 6 quid for 8oz was thinking of getting this?
