Re: RIB Repair

Sometimes the fellows that repack rafts do repairs and if you find one they are usually very good at it.

Mutiny Inflatables in White Rock. They are an authorized Walker Bay repair shop. I've no affiliation with them except that they are currently working on my dinghy and I'm happy with their service.

Re: RIB Repair

Has anyone used 5200 to re-glue PVC floor on good tubes. 2 hp boat, no flooring.

Re: RIB Repair

Scaramanga F25,

Fwiw, Jim and I once successfully used 5200 to glue a Herculon (PVC with a polyester scrim) bottom to a hypalon dinghy. The glue, once set up, stayed for the remainder of the dinghy's life. It should be kept warm and dry while the glue cures.

Ann, with Jim, aboard US s/v Insatiable II, in Oz, as of 2018, I shall have been cruising, coastal and oceanic, for 38 years; Jim has even more years than that!
