zodiak

I have a 9' Zodiak and the entire bottom is unglued. Can I glue the bottom and have it hold up when I use it?

Depends what material it is. How old is it?

The boat isn't that old, they let it fill with water and the bottom fell out. The boat is PVC. When I went to West Marine the person there said he tried to glue on a bottom and the first time he used it the bottom fell out again.

You need to spend a lot of time prepping and gluing it correctly. The right glue is very important.

Stabond Adhesive at NRSweb.com

I reglued the entire bottom and transom of my boat years ago and it is still going.

Pete;

Didn't you do the same repair about a year ago?

T'was 'bout three years past. Since mine was a glue failure all the glue for the floor and the transom had to be cleaned 100% off and everything got reglued. In this case I would guess the OP could get away with just gluing where it failed.
