Re: Plastic dinghy repairs

if the outer hull fills with water and make it heavy then either repair it again and keep the water out or dill bigger holes in the outer hull and let the water out faster.

Exacting, repaired many tanks especially vintage ones. Everything you need from determining what kind of plastic your dealing with to material/tools to repair it can be found here

Re: Plastic dinghy repairs

Great site, Pappy! That "KC Welder Pro" for kayaks and canoes looks like the one. The price is reasonable, and I might have other uses for a plastic welder. Welder $63.00, 16 oz. of G/Flex $63.00. Hmmmm? Welder can be re-used, G/Flex when it's gone, it's gone.

I don't think they make the Sandpiper 8's any more, but from browsing some old online ads it looks like they are ABS plastic. Now I wonder if the welder will work over top of the previous fiberglass/epoxy repair attempt?

A lot of my desert racing buddies did Vintage MX , I stay with open desert, enduros, supermoto and sometime trials, mostly desert. I did have a 501, TM400, yz465 and a IT465 never raced any of them, they were more show off bikes, I raced KTM's from 200mxc to a 520mxc

This was my last show off bike

[IMG][/IMG]

This was a basket case, a buddy who rode for Yamaha used up two 426's, he ended up getting two new 450's and said here,do your thing, so I did. This is my vision of a retro 1991 YZ ( based on a 2001 426YZF and inspired by the Hanna edition YZ ) All the control and suspension is Pro Circuit thanks to a bud who rode for them, frame is powder coated red, swingarm silver, wheels anodized gold, rubs black, I drew up the graphics and my graphics guy made them up. All fasteners including axles and pinon pin are Titanium motor is 440+CC.

I was offered 10k for it but, I gave it to my son and it's now in my storage
