Glue and stuff for Zodiac Z34

Sixy has her own boat now- a Zodiac Zed 34 sib (cheers Neil!).

There's a couple of odd jobs I need to do before it goes in the water.

1) The inflatable keel has come unglued.

2) The bond between the black rubber bit between the transom and the tubes has come slightly adrift at the join with the transom.

It looks like Hypalon-but the rubber bit that's bonded to the transom isn't and the keel isn't.
What glue do I use?

Hi Matt,

The keel tube came unstuck now and again, and the old man reckons he used to stick it down with ordinary contact adhesive from memory. I don't if it really needs it though, it seemed to stay in place with pure pressure between hull material and the boards, it has not got far to go.
I have no idea what glue you use.

Is the black rubber bit going to be OK? I did not notice any problem last weekend when I blew it up, but all I really did check was that it still inflated, held air OK and was all there.

If the transom looks bad or is a concern, let me know, I'll collect it some time and you can have your money back.

And if you get her out, post some pics and info on speed etc, as I had been considering sticking a 20 on it myself for some fun at some point.

Cheers

Neil

It's fine-it's only minor-cheers Neil! It's just me being picky. It's only a case of pulling it apart so there's enough room to get some glue in there and shoving some glue in then holding it together for a bit til it sets.

I've got contact adhesive-if that's what was used before I'll use that again for the keel. I'm not sure what to use on the transom.

I think I'm going to have to find a handheld GPS. I can lift the whole thing when it's together so I imagine it'll be quite quick...

Dad's found the old brochure. It's not Hypalon but it is Dynalon and coated in polyester.

Dad has the brochure and care leaflet at home he's found. I can post it if you pm me an addredd or bring it on the next cruise we're both at. (you might have to remind me though!)

On the glue front, might be worth trying these guys.

Of course you'll be looking for a steering bar as well now. with a 20 on, reckon you'll need it to get the weight up front, or at least a tiller extension

Thanks Neil,PM sent.

I was wondering about tiller extensions-there's just enough room for her to get a fair way forward but not sure if it's enough.

So... Who's Sixy?

Tell her congrats on the boat, in any case.
