Zodiac GRII

Good day

Have been a lurker on this forum and find it great. Now need some help please. I have a Zodiac GRII with data plate as attached. Shows that it is a type model 2355.What does that mean? Could anyone help with the year model-apparently it is shown on the data plate if you understand it. Would this be a Hypalon boat and not Strongex.Any other info on the boat would be great.

Thank you

Paul

Zodiac 2355 was their part number in the late 70's-early 80's

Your boat was an 1981 MK2 Grand Raid Neoprene fabric.

In 1982 they changed the part number to 2422, then in 1984 it changed to 2424.

Thank you. Is Neoprene the same as Hypalon or would there be a difference? I need to reglue some strips.Also the rubber protective strips on the sides and back are cracking. How would one repair them without replacing. Is it possible to fill in the cracks with some type of rubber repair material. New at this type of thing and clueless!

Hypalon fabric is called Neoprene-Hypalon, its the same.

By rubber protective strips you mean rub strake? If you are not sure, could you post a picture? Filling the gap with a soft rubber material is not the option, I doubt that it would hold.
My call if its only cracking: live with it you have a very good boat but its old.

If it is falling apart you should remove all attacked rub strake and re-glue it.

Post pictures for more precises advice.
