Re: 3M 5200 on a dingy?

Chuck- was your Avon and/or AB hypalon or pvc?

Also, in Mexico, have you had success in the past finding Tuolene or similar?

I have to admit most of these holes were caused from fish spines or sharp rocks.

Good luck

Greetings Mike.

Both Dinks were hypalon. I used rubbing alcohol to clean them before using the super glue. Be sure to scuff up where the patch goes with #30 sand paper

Good luck
