Inland Marine Sealant > Toobseal.

But yes, mine has about a half gallon in it. It is due for another half gallon and a roll again.

Just me sure to pipe it down through the IC valves so you don't glue them shut... go ahead and service/grease'em beforehand.

Are you saying inland marine sealant is better than toobseal?

I used a gallon it do of inland sealant on my 7m tubes. I did glue the valves up good. Ended up replacing the ancient ones with current models

Do not ever use interior sealant in a boat with I/c valves. Never seen someone do it without screwing up the valves. Richard may have gotten lucky but then again he probably has ready access to the tools to tear those down and clean them. I've been servicing these boats for over 25 years and have seen many of these valves totally trashed by using interior sealant. It also destroys the diffuser bags inside the fast inflation points if you have a boat with those.

It is my preference.

Inland Marine's sealant is water based, so if you can clean it up easily while it is still wet. If you get a little bit on the valve assembly, just splash an ounce of water on to rinse it off. If you grease the assembly with tripleguard grease beforehand (You know, the cleaning/greasing procedure you do twice a year?), it won't stick anyways...

If you care about your automatic inflate system as cgoing mentioned, flush it with water and a little compressed air from a rubber-tip nozzle, and let the boat cure upside-down. If you put the correct amount of sealant in, there will be minimal pooling.

It drives me nuts when people just slosh it in without a care. It doesn't take much to cure the coffee creamer fizzy leaks and a little tygon tubing to direct the sealant flow goes a long way.
