Dingy - Seaworthy Brand

I have an older dingy that came with my boat. All I know is that it is a SeaWorthy Dingy and BoatUs is out of business.

Multiple leaks exist and the valves need replaced. It will hold air for a couple of hours. The problem is the company that makes the valves no longer makes replacement pieces for that model.

Does anyone know where to get replacement parts for this model of dingy, a user support group, and or a way to recoat the hyplan to stop deteriation?

Oh last question, are any of the sealants that you put in the tubes to automatically seal leaks any good?

Thanks, Edward

Go to a bicycle shop and get some slime. Don't know how well it'll work for a dinghy, but it works great on bicycle tires. WestMarine took over BoatUS's stores, so they may know a bit more about the dinghy and if you can get parts for it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

BoatUS still sells insurance though, or is that a different BoatUS?

Same company.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

re

WestMarine has told me several times they do not do anything with Seaworthy anymore. One store manager told me to call around and maybe a store would still have parts.

I called a few and nope.
