Dinghy from the Skip (Trash Pile) ! How Do I Repair ?

It is a pvc Italian Arimar (project 240) in perfect condition apart from one problem......the outer pvc floor (it has a detachable inner glass fibre hull shaped floor) has become detached. Think it has been stored upside down in the sun. How can I repair so that I can trust it? There must be a glue. It would be a great waste to return it to the dump as otherwise it looks unused and is off a slightly unusual clever design.

Thanks, Monday

A company called Polymarine do glues for both Hyperlon and PVC, just make sure you use the right one and the "thinners" cleaner before hand.

Instructions are on their web site under "Advice"
