Repairing a small scrape

I have discovered a small scrape on the bottom of my Bombard Aerotec.

http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/g...1/DSCF0400.jpg

It hasnt gone all the way through but you can see the fibres. So is there any way to repair this sort of scrape other than patching it?
My only problem with patching is it just looks rough.

If patching is the only option do Bombard supply patches to match the boats material.

Cheers

Mike

thares a two part liquid skin you can go over it with, and you can do the same on the other side so it matches

Sounds good do you have a link or even a name for it?
Thanks

All the best

For tha type of wear problem we just put a small cover patch on (same colour fabric). probably only a 25mm diameter round patch. Very easy 5 minute job, using the bostik 1669 adhesive.

Fairly sure Bombard (part of Zodiac Group) is PVC material. That being said I'd opt for a small patch. Use 2-part PVC adhesive from www.polymarine.com

PVC material in assorted colours are usually available from local boat chandler or order online.

Thanks for the input.

The only reasons for avoiding a patch is
1. it looks crap
2. once patched for some reason it becomes worthless if I want to sell it.

I agree that it is a good option, but does anyone else no what the coating is called ??
I am sure I have seen this before.

Sealant

I'd mask off the area around the bit with fibres showing and then try a thin layer of aquasure sealant on the scraped area. It dries to a tough rubbery/plasticy material and seems very adherent.

It is a pinky colour though.

If it doesn't work then you can still go down the patch route.

I would use Sikaflex 291T Black- just smear it over the worn part.
The Aerotec's material is Hypalon, not PVC. You havnt got any worries about loosing any pressure as the black part is only the hull skin.
