Obtaining hypalon patching kit

Hello Boaters,

Looking to patch a few leaks in my zodiac Mark II circa 1980 which is hypalon. Would any of these be ok?

Defender Inflatable Boat Hypalon Repair Patches

Amazon.com: NRS Hypalon Repair Kit: Sports & Outdoors

Thanks. Jack

Both would do it, but if you can buy the hypalon and glue separately you can shape the patches so they look a bit less like repairs and more like wear patches

Thanks. I live in Kamloops, British Columbia, a small town of 90,000. Would the homedepot or the local hardware store have these hypalon and glue for sale? Where do you think I can get them?

The glue is Bostik 2402 or equivalent-can you get it shipped to you?

Hypalon can be shipped from anywhere that sells it-it's available off the roll on UK ebay if you're desperate.

NRS Web has everything you need (well, not Bostik; they sell a different brand.)

They're in WA state, I think; but I'm pretty sure they ship to Canada.

If that's a hassle, look for a Canadian rafting supply shop.

Defender sells the hypalon in strips and hypalon glue seperately on their website. They can also get other colors and sizes of material cut for you if you do not see what you want on their website. You can email them at inflatables@defender.com

Good luck with your repair!
