Our 13-year old AquaPro dinghy
has numerous holes in the hull
- too many beach landings onto coral
, rock, etc. I've tried several different patching materials and adhesives but none seem to hold very long.
I recently came across a product called HTS-2000 low-temperature aluminum
brazing rod and I've seen some impressive videos (isn't it amazing how well products work in the demo videos?) but I'm wondering if anyone on CF has any personal experience with it.
The Hypalon fabric
of our dinghy
is still in pretty good shape but it has lead a very hard life. We're visiting the States right now and this would be the time and place to buy a new dinghy, which I'm not totally opposed to doing. Still, if I were confident that I could successfully repair the one I've got, that would be my first preference.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Fair winds, calm seas and Happy Holidays!
