My Honwave is DEAD

I got given a unloved Honwave T30. But after patching it one to many times its going in the bin. The glue has had it, all of the seams you can peel back with just your fingers, some are harder than others. As you can see a seam going out of the blue (second time) is not good news.

Yep, that looks like the end of the road/water for that boat.

You could glue back all parts which have become unglued if you want to, but cost will be pricey if sent to a reputed boat shop. Another story if doing the work by yourself if you're skilled and know how to re glue well. Will need tons of work, patience besides good quality 2 part pvc glue, correct cleaning materials and appropriate temp while working at it.

On a sib the only part that can't be repaired is the fabric istself, once dried, cracked, pourous, delaminated, KO, it's shot forever and ever.

Btw, how old is that sib ?

Happy Boating

The trouble is I don't trust the boat. All of the glue as deteriorated. You can peel back any seam with just your finger nails. I will find out how old it is

Well in that case RIP Honwave Sib. As you can see Long Live the Sib is all related to glue and probably factory temp when assembling. Why can't Asian manufacturers use better quality long lasting glues. Probably don't want to last that long.

Now a days specially at the tropics uper accesories as rope tie, handles, oar locks, rubstrakes which lasted glued 5 years are now holding in place at the most 3-4 years, or the quality glue has gone down or the UV has increased dramatically, seems both.

Happy Boating
