Patching help!

Hi all,

Currently trying to patch an old Avon Sib floor up, there are two holes with are pretty big and just wondering if I should do anything differently others than doing two patches, one under and one on top?

Also in the bottom there is an inflatable tube to shape the bottom of the boat under the wood floor, however there are roughly a million holes in it and doubt I'd be able to patch them all properly, any advice?

Big repairs can be improved by fitting an internal patch as well as the external one. Some of the existing repairs look a lit 'quick fix' too.

As for the brown stuff - it depends what it is - but you almost certainly need to physically and chemically remove it in areas where you want patches to stick.

I am not the sort to be splashing cash on new stuff for fun - but I do think those tubes look like they may have reached the realistic limit of what can be sensibly repaired.

The tubes themselves actually hold air decently, these holes are just in the floor, only problem I have with the tubes are that the valves let out a slow leak over time

By the time you have it sorted jack your going to be in the hundreds since you need a new keel tube as well as the floor patching I would think
not sure what you want it for but if just a tender you can pick them up on eBay cheap enough.
