Re: Dink Air Leaks
We've had great luck using a two part epoxy glue (Epoxy 330) on our Zodiac. I still haven't figured out if it's Hypalon or PVC, having been told both from several professional Zodiac reps.
Getting the area to be patched and the patch CLEAN is the number one thing to keep in mind. Serious sanding and removing any residue from that and even oils from one's hands is imperative.
We redid our lifting rings several years ago and they have lasted longer than the job the professional who installed them did, and the dink hangs by them every single night at anchor (350 or so a year).
