Hello Lee, I'm a new recruit but I'm guessing from previous posts you could be the inflatable boat Guru..:D

The cheap inflatable that I use to get out to my sailing boat which lives on a swinging mooring in the summer, is a bit like me...it's coming adrift at the seams...:rofl:
Seriously..I have to roll it up to car transport it and the air tubes are parting company with the wooden transom. I know there are adhesives available but have you got any recommendations for which glue. I think the boat is the cheaper nylon type fabric not the Hyperlon (spelling) The Adhesive needs to be a flexible sort to cope with the rolling/folding of the dinghy.
Thanks in advance..Sax.

Use 2 part pvc glue and prime and clean off all the old glue with pvc primer or thinners. When gluing apply a layer to both, let it dry then apply again and hold, clamp, ratchet strap together.
