Tried that once.. Not impressed. Prepping and painting floor with Hypalon could work.

Inflatable boat sealant- duh. West sells it for about 60$

Floor leaks in dinghy

There is some stuff you put in then roll the boat around and reinflate that does exactly this. Works pretty well. Forget the name, but was easy to find at Hamilton marine or west marine.

I have used Aluthane - a mcu aluminum paint on a weathered plastic tarp used as a boat cover - sealed it nicely. I bit stiff but not an issue for your material. google aluthane

Floor leaks in dinghy

We just bought a used dinghy. It has an inflatable floor that sits on top of an inflatable keel. The top side of the floor has a series of pinhole leaks. Is there a fix that anyone knows of for this, like 'fix a flat. The dinghy is hypalon and I am assuming that the floor is the same.
