I am almost sure the tubes are PVC as I thought Hypalon was used in the newer boats, I may be wrong, I have bought and used stuff for PVC with no hassles so far, so fingers crossed, I might try and email Zodiac in France as I believe that is where the boat is manufactured originally to see what other info I can find out,
My Acetone eventually turned up and I have ordered some MEK, I am just waiting for that to arrive, I will defiantly wear gloves and eye protection just to be on the safe side,
I take it the boat has to be deflated if using a heat gun? I dont plan on tackling those bits yet, but concentrating on the must do now repairs, just thinking ahead for now,
I managed to remove my Ali flooring on Sunday, Easy, when you know how so they say, I let a bit more air out of the tubes, and off the bars popped with a little slight persuation, couldn't be happier until I seen under the flooring for the first time ever,
To be honest I think I have my work cut out a little as you can see by some of the photos I took on Sunday, its mainly the Bow but looking at the rear just below where the outboard sits it looks like it might of give way,
I did not notice it when I was with the boat but noticed it when I was looking at the photos on the pc, what is your expert opinion?, Looking at the photo I am sure the rear of the floor is not meant to be like that ;-( is it fixable?
If you have a spare minute could you have a look at some of my photos of the boat I took on Sunday, I think most will be easy repairs but I am worried about the rear of the boat,
Thanks in advance, and thanks for the information on how to remove the glue etc, most informative, and it will be a great help when I come to do the practical repairs, That is if we get a break in the cold weather, does it have to be warm to carry out these repairs? as I have no means of a heated garage etc, as it is quite cold in the UK now :-(
