Acetone's not that good. MEK probably will shift it, but it'll melt the tube a bit

I'd oversize the outer patch too.

You could try gently using one of these:-

THey get hypalon glue off quite well. Not sure what it'll be like on PVC though. I'd try it by hand before using a drill.

You'd be surprised. They are softer than you think-much like a slightly stiffer scotchbrite pad.

I posted this repair guide a couple of years back on this forum which I made for the old man's inflatable shop website. I've now transferred the link to another site because it's still a good guide to relate to.

This one is the large hole repair guide. There's also a floor repair guide. :-)
