Hi Paul .. TBH its hard to tell ,, the fabric is the same colour both sides afaik but has been painted aswell. I opted to wait and get the MEK and repatched this morning with the 2 part glue .. others have suggested its PVC ?
It definately needs retubed for sure .. I just cant make up my mind whether its worth it because of how little I use it, or better to buy another boat
I am minded to retube as the engine and hull are good
Anyways next question, as the patch is in a slight curved area .. is it better to partially inflate and allow it to cure to profile, or leave it flat to cure ?
