Repairing the torn seam on your Sacs is specialist work, especially as your tube is grey and worn. It is particularly important to ensure that the seam remains straight, or your Sacs will run unevenly on the water.

Have you sought Professional advice?

It is Hypalon cannot find anyone in Florida so far. I have a race team and crew chief we have somre skill but not the expertise on this subject. All thoughts and reccomendations would be appreciated!

Any idea who can re-tube the boat in Florida?

Thanks
Steve
