Inflatable boat Sealant.

Has anyone tried this stuff in an Airdeck?

http://www.rib-shop.com/product.asp?...For=&PT_ID=231

I've heard good stuff about it in a SIB, but I'm wondering about adding some to the airdeck of the Bombard once I've repaired it from the outside to add some protection from the inside.
Not sure how the insides of the airdeck will take to it though.

Thanks

Nasher

I had a small leak in the keel tube on my old BRIG sib. Used the Polymarine Sealant and worked fine, did not even have to patch it.

The airdeck is constructed differently, maybe little harder to get the stuff going to the right places as there is plenty of material inside keeping the flat shape of the deck. But with sufficient amount of liquid should be possible and the deck is also pretty easy to turn into a good position to reach the right spot. Maybe someone here have done it would know for sure?

Thanks C-Numb

Has anyone actually tried it?
Or am i in danger of wrecking the deck completely?

Sealant will not work well in an airdeck. The sealant will goop up all of the drop stitching and make a mess.

"Slime" for inside tube sealant?

I know this is made for tires but has anyone ever tried it for a Hypalon boat?

I wonder how close the stiches are located inside the air deck? Would it be possible to put a hose/tube thrugh the valve hole into the right spot and then lead through that
a limited amout of liquid to the "hot spot". Then You would not risk to mess up the whole deck?

Mmmmm, I like your thinking.

The inside of the airdeck is basically a mass of cross fibres.
If you image a sheet of chopped strand fibreglass mat that has been expanded you'd get some idear, there is no pattern to it at all.

But a long tube could possibly be pushed through to get it in the correct place.

I've started mucking about with a complicated patch being glued around the corner in two stages today, but if that doesn't work I may have a better look at your idear.
Unfortunately the 'bad' spot is as far away from the valve holes as you could get, so it wouldn't be easy.

Could it be injected into the right place with a hypodermic from somewhere easy to patch?
