Rib repairs

Hi all

Towards the end of last summer I noticed that an existing patch (already put on when I bought the boat) was leaking slightly. Iím after some advice on what to do; totally take the existing patch off and replace with a new one, or; stick some glue around the existing patch where itís leaking?
Also what repair kit/equipment would people recommend to fix the issue?

Cheers

Ian

Have a look at both Henshaws & polymarine websites both sell repair equipment and both have repair guides on their websites.
Stick with two pack glue, bostic 2402 or equivalent if its hypalon.

Hi Russ

I went with Polymarine in the end. Thereís a pack you can buy to repair PVC boats with some pretty good guidance on how to do it. Even though Iíve bought the kit I havenít made a start on it yet but Iíll put some pics up when Iíve done it.

Polymarine were also really helpful when I rang up to discuss what needed to be done.

Will keep you posted on how I get on.

Ian
