I do not understand how Zodiac stays in business, with the crap they make , my story, i wore out a 12 ft, Zodiac over the year's in S.E. Asia
, great boat
, so purchased another in 1985, used it for about 2 month's, and stored it away after cleaning
it and powdering it down, along with a smaller Avon
, 2 year's later upon unpacking both, i found the Zodiac in piece's, talking to the agent, i found out, it was made with a combination of PVC and Hypolong, glued together, and the glue had failed, the Hypolong Avon
was fine, cause i had purchased it out of the USA, it was not covered by any guarantee, wrote Zodiac in France
, with no response, it's impossible to reglue a boat
, unless your a professional, and the local shop opted out of the job,soooo, i thru in the dumpster, a NEW $ 3000 dollar boat, i hate Zodiac, and any time i can bad mouth them i do.
