There is a product that you pour into the tube through the valve opening, and shake around to coat the inside of the tube, curing any small leaks.

I have used it on an inflatable in the past, and it worked -- but I don't have the details to hand. Try asking in a chandlers and see if they can help. If I can find more details I'll post them here.

Cheers
John

In the site IBS (http://www.inflatable-boat-supplies.fsnet.co.uk/ibsspares.htm)
they have a Leak Detector and an Inflatable Sealant kit!

I have a soultion from the Outside.

I have a quite old AVONB Searider. Boats of this size can't be shaken around to distribute some sealant. The solution comes from germany, at Coelean ( www.coelan.de Email: coelan@coelan.de ) they sell a one component PU paint, which is super flexible. They also offer a primer and colour pastes. The result on my AVON was really good, Treated parts are sealed, also the fresh painted appearance is really good
If you need further information mail or post
