How to set an inside patch?

I have a Bombard C2 inflatable and I've been suffering of one seam leak and now I found the leak beside the seam (different spot). This time I decided to put an inside patch before gluing the top fabric. All information about the "inside the tube" repairs would be very helpfull, especially the procedure to apply the glue to the tube and the placing the patch inside.

Thank you for the very good web site.

sincerely J. Hjerppe

Hi Chaps
This is a nasty one - just been through all this myself. Nick Gilbertson who posts here, is a tube-maker and would be best qualifies to offer you advice on this. PM or e-mail him and I am sure he would be most helpful.

Inside patch

Sorry for the delay of this answer!

It's not easy job to put a patch inside the tube but not impossible. I put one patch inside the Bombard's tube.

First, plan the job carefully. Then widen the hole big enough so that you can get your hand inside. Then cut a patch with overlap around 5 cm. The rest of the job is similar to the normal outside repair. The most tricky part is to place the patch inside with the adhesive. Try dummy run first without adhesive to find out the best way to place the patch.

Finally set the outside patch over the hole and everything should be okay.

Good luck!

Jari
