My buddy gave me a 13' hypalon Zodiac
. it's about 25 years old in great condition. It's made in France
and a huge difference in quality from the 10ft PVC zodiac
I have that was made in China
I have an O'day 39 that I intend to do commuter Cruising from Lake Michigan to the Bahamas
The boat has a plywood
floor and can hold a 40 HP motor
. I have a 15 HP yamaha for it.
What would be the best use for this thing? I beleive I can fit in on the foredeck but lifting it may be an issue. I do not have a davit and don't plan on getting one.
Also: I Purchased some flexible Epoxy
called Flex Set from West marine
. It seems to work great on both the Hypalon and the PVC. Much easier and much more successful than the two part contact adhesives. Anyone have experience with this stuff?
