That needs more than (the proper) glue to fix it...

Suggestion?

Naturally, I will first be removing all of the old repair attempts (5200, goo etc).

Other pics of it :

Yes, there is a leak as well. However it is at the bow.

Not sure it is Araldite Rapide, the FlexSet blurb (my red colouring):

It looks a lot like the blub for Araldite

Araldite Rapid Syringe 24ml


AralditeŽ Rapid 24ml syringe is a strong, long lasting solvent-free adhesive which gives both prompt positioning of parts, up to 4 minutes, with permanent full bond strength in 3 hours. It is water resistant and can be painted or sanded.
Bonds metal, wood, masonry, ceramics, glass, dry concrete, chipboard, leather, cardboard, fabric, rubber and most plastics (except polyethylene, polypropylene, TeflonŽ).
The 2-component epoxy with fast setting. Parts repositionable for 4 minutes. High temperature resistance (-30° C to 65° C). Oil, chemical and impact resistant.


The proper stuff is contact adhesive which makes putting it all together a lot easier. But if you cant get it, you might as well use the other stuff, what have you got to lose ?

I was given the RIB and the engine free of cost, so it is probably worth the gamble.


Nevertheless, even after I clean and prep and apply glue the question arises: how to be able to apply enough pressure evenly to get the surfaces to stick well to the transom.

One method:
Deflate the tube pretty much completely, and cut a plywood form (might need a few thicknesses glued or nailed together to match the transom thickness) that matches the curve of the transom. Once glued up, place the form against the outside of the tube, and clamp it up however you can.

If you were using the normal 2-part hypalon glue (or PVC glue depending on your fabric) you could stick it together and use some sort of wheeled thing to roll pressure onto the joint (again from the outboard side of the tube.) In this case, you don't need long term pressure, you just need to drive the 2 layers of adhesive together.

Good luck;

Check with AB inflatables distributer, should stock some 2 part pvc glue. Once unglued parts are well cleaned, turn sib to rest at other side, aply 2 part glue mix to both sides being glued, press deflated tube firmly against transom with metal roller tool if available.

Get a big bag of sand and put it against side being glued. The bag should take the shape of the round transom, weight will maintain both glued parts in contact. Let dry.

Happy Boating
