You think the Fijians have a pressing need for hypalon glue?

Dunno about Fiji, but in Oz it is available in 500 mL tins. The really good thing about SC2000 (or 4000 in some areas where Toluene is banned for public use) is besides having really good bond strength, it has excellent shelf life, even after opening. If you keep the catalyst in the fridge (it's a tiny jar) the stuff will last for years... and it is good for many things other than dinghy repair.

Hope you can find some!

Jim

The 5200 is a lot easier to keep fresh on the boat with small tubes that are available.
Whatever works is ok with me. As to 5200, it can be messy (you can wash it off with WD40!). The Flex Seal product seems to be a solution for really old compromised material that even two part Weaver, at $50/pop, won't cover in quantity. Small pint can of Flex Seal @ around $20, I just ended up painting the majority of the surface area with the stuff. I don't care how it looks, in fact the worse the better, more distinctively ugly and less desirable to sticky fingered dink absconders. My dinghy is now a white whale, I think I'll paint some eyes on it. as to being able to get back to the boat? In my case, just lucky a friend let me use his for a few days while I made the repairs. If a few cans save me from having to spend several thousand on a new one, I'm ok with that for now.
