Honwave Patch

I have a tiny pin-prick hole on my Honwave, that takes about 3 weeks to go down and then its out with the pump. Eventually getting fed up constantly having to pump it, so want to repair it.
1. The are PVC if I recall correctly ?
2. Do I need a specific patch ? Can I get them in different colours, if so from where (need navy blue / honda blue)
3. Presume the same 2 pack glue I used to put on seat holder patches will work
4. As hole is so small, is it possible to fix/weld/glue this without a patch ?
Any info much appreciated

Hi

We sell a range of repair items for your pvc Honwave; complete repair kits, 2-part PU adhesive, pvc fabrics etc, see here. If you have a 'pin prick' leak then the alternative to 'patch n glue' is our Sealskin sealer, this is acrylic based not latex.

We have an e-library of help & advice or feel free to give us a shout if you need any advice.

Hope that helps?

Chris

Thanks mate . I have checked and the Honwave is PVC (just half asleep last night when posting) I have some 2 pack glue from putting on the seat holder patches, just need some blue patches to match the Honwave blue on the boat.
Like the idea of the sealskin, just not sure which way to go, think if I got a blue patch I would go that way before I use the sealskin.

We work on the basis of; if you can see the puncture/hole/tear then you need a patch and if you can't then Sealskin may be the solution. PVC patches are here. Cheers. Chris

So I can see this pinhole when it bubbles under water, so methinks a small patch is in order.Is the blue patch a match for the blue in the Honwaves ?
How much would postage be to rep. of ire for the patches, does not give the rate on your ebay shop and would rather order through ebay.
