Doesn't look like a tough patch job, and since it doesn't have to hold air, it's not going to be all that critical. jky
Peter_C, thanks for your input
Youve got it right, its reinforcement, as the boat is airtight.im trying for symetry with starboard side.
Ive got a kit from these guys.
I ordered last week so should be here next week.
I looked at repair links on youtube and they pressed down with a burnishing tool a metal roller.
I dont think I can do that in that area, well I can do it but it would have to be done when inflated.
I can put a ratchet strap to snug it position its got grab handles on the outer tube so I can create a force over the top side.
Anyhoo, thats my area of concern.
A photo showing grab handles are in my accidental post in "announcements"
Can you direct me to a link for gluing on this site, Im new here.
Thanks for your advice.
