what Stephan says. he knows inflatables, and I would recommend buying inflatable
thingys from his company - www.defender.com
- as well as anything else boat
related you need.
I've owned my seaworthy inflatable
since the 90's and it's still very serviceable. they were made in the Balkans and imported by boat u.s. when boat u.s. had their own stores, until they were bought out by west marine
. I can't tell you how to patch it because I've never had to do any repairs
