Here's a Tacky Dumby Question

I may need to install a patch in the future. I notice a lot of instructions say to wait until the glue is tacky before applying the patch. How do you know when the time is right?

Hi there, you should key (rough up with sandpaper) the area & patch first. clean up with solvent (acetone or similar I believe) Then apply 1 coat of glue. This must be dry before applying the second coat. Wait until it feels tacky (depends on air temperature) but should feel slightly sticky to the touch. Then having done the same on the patch, stick it on! Please note that when you apply it, it will be very difficult to manoevre!!! so get it right first time if possible? lol. Hope this helps? John

Depends on the material - you don't rough up PVC (90% of SIB's) - only Hypalon.

If it is too dry a hot air gun will resolve it.

Loads of guides on here and via Google. Just search for inflatable boat repair patch glue how to ....etc
