Captain tolleys ?

Is it any good, I have a slow leak around the seems of my bay walker genesis, mostly around the folding transom area and where the seat is attached to the tubes, probably other places that I've just not found yet.
I bought a bottle of sealskin sealant and it didn't work at all, I even dismantled the tubes away from the hull so I could spin the tubes regular to give an even coat of sealant, but still losing air 5 days on.

I have just gone round the obvious seems with some captain tolleys leak cure that I had left over from another project, so wondering has anyone else tried it and did it work.

Failing this I'll probably have to risk divorce and buy a bottle of sealant per tube just to get a good covering inside

Any none overly expensive ideas will be fantastic, first inflatable rib I've had so would like to get it right.

cheers in advance

PVC or Hypalon/CSM?

Update.. after adding captain tolleys (almost full 250ml bottle) into the offending tube, it was still very much firm and inflated this morning, since getting the rib it usually deflates quite a lot.

Took it out on the canal again today and it was perfect, stayed fully inflated

Just the bloody engine failed on me again

Good stuff. I have used it on our family cabin cruiser and on my land rover with success both times.

I have faith in it for it's intended use of sealing the old rubbers on the camper van but wasn't sure how it would work for air leaks, it's worked ok so far but lets see how it stands up to the test of time
