Matt, given that you suspect you've got several different materials to bond together I'd reckon Bostik 2402 would be worth a try. Its a pretty good fall-back option for everything except plasticized PVC. Link to RS website included

Thanks Andrew. I ordered some 2402 (useful stuff to have around anyway).
I also happened upon This stuff on the Seamark Nunn website while I was looking around and I'm tempted to try it. I'll try it on something similar before I let it anywhere near the boat though.

The actual bit that needs bonding is below:-

Your welcome Matt.

I've tried some of the Devweld stuff before - not sure if it was the one you've got a link to though. Anyways the particular compound I tried was really good for bonding rigid plastics (repairing equipment casings/ consoles) but was quite rigid so was little use for flexible bonds. However I guess you'll know for sure when your tube arrives.

I also think that I've got some polymarine PVC somewhere in the shed. I'm in Poole so if you're coming down this way (dunno if your dad's boat is still at parkstone) then give me a shout and I'll look it out and let you have it - save's buying a whole tub and I've now got a hypalon boat rather than my old PVC Narwhal.

Have fun with the SIB

Andrew

Cheers Andrew,

The stuff from Devweld arrived today and I did a test piece with some similar material (unprepped) onto some wood. It seemed to work very well-after an hour I ripped them apart and it took a lot of doing.
The glue was still on the material and bits of wood came away on what came off so I did the repair with it.

Sounds like you're pretty well set, but for future reference, Aquaseal (by McNett) supposedly does a good job on PVC (and hypalon, for that matter), and pretty much bonds to anything short of silicone.

Personally, I'd use it as a last-ditch weapon in the arsenal, at least for boats (it's primary in my dive gear kit), but nice to know it's there.
