Re-glueing with either hypalon or pvc be sure to completely deflate the dinghy and put the reglue under some type of compression to insure a tight repair. The first time we reglued our hypalon Avon we didn't deflate but glued and used only duct tape to apply pressure... big mistake. Second try we deflated, scraped and after regluing used a weighted wood plank over the rub-rail and had an almost "oem" seal after the repair.

Good Luck!
