PVC glue advice

What glue are the factories using to build these boats? I have some bad seam leaks among other glue issues that i need to address before the weather changes. However I've heard so many opinions on glues I don't know which direction to go. The work I need to do is extensive and I don't want to have to do it twice. So who makes the best PVC glue for inflatable boats?

RIBase
This side of the pond, then Polymarine 2-part kit. I'm sure Bostik make an equivalent. Preparation is everything, including degreasing area with MEK. Ambient temperature is crucial (as long as not humid)... which shouldn't be a problem in your part of the world!

Thanks for the input. I have been seeing that stuff online. Glad to hear it works. I used hh-66 to do a couple patches as recommended by a company, but just recently I was told not to use it because it "falls off your boat" I hope using it didn't ruin the fabric for a better adhesive.

Are there any other recommendations? I'm looking for industrial strength glue.
