Re: Dinghy Repair

I've used neoprene rubber strips glued down with polyurethane over the wear areas. Stole the idea from my old Avon dinghy. Works well.

Re: Dinghy Repair

I like the idea of adding wear strips, but they may affect handling. You can buy sheets of hypalon and two part glue to reinforce the bottom as well.
