What's "taping the joint" involve?

Rather than having layer one end, and layer two begin, overlapping a bit, and gluing the overlap; you add a strip on the inside that glues across the interior joint. This strengthens the joint quite a bit.

Apparently Paul's well on top of things, though, so I'll just be quiet now.

Hope your expertise can help Steven through his problems with the boat Paul.

Good luck Steve, nothing is more frustrating than tube leaks in high season!!
Once properly fixed the boat can give you years of service without further problems, hope that it works for you.

how do you get out of the tube once you have stayed inside to glue it on to the interior joint?

I see what you mean though and I also think that this was missing from the original tube ends but I will see more once I take a sharp knife to the tubes which will be both a pleasure (die y 'bstard!!! hack hack slash) and slightly daunting...

Trick is to have a couple of friends helping you out (expendable friends, that is.)

Cracking me up, Stephen. Should you wish some practice, I'd suggest renting Psycho to view proper technique.

It all comes down to planning the glue up sequence. Tape to section 1, then section 2 to the tape *and* section 1.
