That is quite a big parting of the seam did you open it up a bit or did this happen at sea in one go. If so where you hammering it and were the rear tubes well in the water.
also is there any delamination or polymerisation of the Hypalon (the breakdown of the material) it doen't look like from the photos.
if you want to fix it I'll send you some instructions later I haven't got the patience to type them right now
Also what is that Shite on the tubes
I dont think there is any breakdown in the material it still looks decent considering its age.
The parting was only slight but by the time we got back to base it had opened up more.
Our diving club is pretty strapped for cash by the time we pay our marina fees so if we can save some money by carrying out a succesful repair ourselves then it is worth a go in my books.
I dont know what the shite on the tubes it has been there for the past couple of years Iv been a member. I think the rib used to sit in the water full time during the summer months.
If you could send me the instructions it would be apprciated.
