Zodiac introduced PVC fabric to their recreational models in 1986, your boat is older than that. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a PVC zodiac from the '80s that is still useable (unless perhaps if it had been kept unused in storage, covered and partially inflated).

Silicone will also be very damaging to PVC fabric.

Thank you! then my next issue will be finding hypalon glue in sweden.

Do you think the inflateble bottom tube will be made of hypalon aswell? because the i should be able to use that material to repair the boat with? (i have a new one)

The seam tape, Is that in some special material? how can it stay attatched?

Hi Surefire,

I'm not sure where in Sweden you could purchase hypalon fabric, glue and seam tape, but chances are Paul Tilley from Tidelbiz in the UK could either direct you to a local source or export it to you (maybe not the glue).
