15' RIB in Irvine
My name is Darren. I recently picked up a 15' Nouv from a friend. The boat is old, and pretty beat up. Whoever had it before re-skinned the tubes in PVC. There are a few small air leaks. I am hoping to get this rig back into good shape, put a decent 50hp on the back end and use it for diving and fishing in the few areas we have left to fish on the CA coast. I will also be taking her down to Baja as often as I can.
I am looking at all of the threads I can find on using Bilxley's Toobseal, Tuff Coat, Plastiseam...to stop the pin hole leaks. Eventually, I want to fill the tubes with HD Expanding foam. Although, I need to do a lot of research before I do anything.
My boat's name is the Sopwith Camel.
Well, that is just a quick intro.
