Just a follow up for others experiencing this same problem with AB dinghies.
I pulled the seam that holds the floor onto the pontoon up almost 1 meter. Cleaned the aluminum with a wire brush on a dremel and also used the same to clean the seam material. Then prepped the aluminum with west system 2 part aluminum prep (I knew there was a reason to keep this for almost 20 years
Taped all surfaces that I did not want to get the epoxy
on. Mixed up the gflex and spread it on the aluminum and fabric
. Pushed it down and used dive weights in a plastic bag to hold it down.
So far it has not leaked.
Hope this helps folks experiencing the same problem
Mo'orea heading east soon
