Thanks , I will lift it up and fill it up mark the drips. . I will get the two pack glue I believe the boat is pvc . I will repair the prop as they are expensive to replace . If the boat has to be reglued do those joints have to be opened up or just tickled over the top with glue .
Regards chris

If the glue is failing it will require complete disassembly from the bow to the transom. The actual tubes are thermo welded and won't generally fail. It is all the black parts that require repair. FWIW it is a huge job that takes around 40 hours. Not worth it to pay some one, but a handy person with only a few items can do it. Heat gun, some scotch brite scuffy pads, acetone, MEK, disposable paint brushes, a container to measure and mix the glue, along with a few other minor items is all it takes. To be clear it is a BIG project.

As to filling it that should work, but I would recommend taking the floor out and floating it for confirmation of the repairs.

I have fitted a smaller (1/2") pipe and I can just about get the pipe between the air floor and the outer skin in the corner between the transom, tube and floor. I then route the pipe down to the lowest point under the floor.
