repair or trash?
Hello Everyone, I'm new to this forum and was hoping someone could help me with my problem. Maybe 5-7 years ago a guy gave me a Sea Eagle GT 25. This is an inflatable boat, wooden keel, transom, and floors. I believe it has PVC tubes and bottom. When i got the boat the bottom was separating from the tubes and probably a small leak or two somewhere. I put the boat in a barn where it has been sitting since then. I just lost my little jon boat and thought maybe this was worth repairing. I went and took a look at it today and along with the floor coming apart from the tubes some other handles, rings, etc. were coming unglued. I saw what appeared to be a seam on the bottom of one of the tubes, the seam was about an inch wide, and looked like it was peeling apart maybe an 1/8th to 1/4 inch.
So is this boat worth repair? i can tell it would be a lot of work but in the end if i do the repair right would it have some years left in it? I've done a little research on how to repair it. Seems like i just remove the old glue (it looks like the floor maybe have been re-glued in there with the wrong kind of glue) and re-glue the parts in with correct kind of glue.
