Sikaflex leading edges?
I have a Avon 3.4m hypalon boat. It is quite old and on the bottom it ha sa patch on each side, at the junction between transom and tube. This is where the solid floor rests on the rubber floor.
At the end of my last season these patches came loose at thier leading edges. I was doing 17 knots. It is possible the patches were loose and the water pressure just peeled them off. But I am worried that as the cut edge of these patches sticks out a little on an otherwise smooth keel, that they may be catching the water pressure.
I read somewhere (can't remember where) that sometimes leading edges are sikaflexed so as to provide a smooth surface (I think). Do you think I need to do this or do you think they will be ok now they have been reglued?
Many thanks for looking,
