Large dinghy leak repair

Hi, my cheap 9ft inflatable dinghy has failed miserably over the last week. just been in the marina and found both tubes deflated. Hoisted it on the deck, started inflating and found that both tubes conned end delaminated and leaked badly. last week here was pretty sunny but this is only second summer(Pacific North West) that it is exposed and glued seams on the black conned tip have failed. Is there any remedy for this or I have to look for another one? Any suggestions on how to approach this repair? This is not a simple puncture that can be patched up....

Any ideas and suggestions are more than welcome.

Re: Large dinghy leak repair

I assume this is a PVC inflatable. Taking it to a shop that repairs inflatables would be the best option, assuming the cost of the repair is worth it. You can buy repair kits, but they are generally for minor repairs.

Leaving a PVC boat out in the sun for extended periods is not a good idea. But I didn't think you had sun in PNW!
