We have been using this boat as a dingy for 4 years. Continuous dragging of the dingy up rough gravel beaches has taken its toll on the boat and rubbed through on the fronts of the tri hull keels.

It is double hulled, so now water is getting in between.

Is anyone aware of a process, or a resource to repair large rub through holes in these plastic boats? And a way to strengthen those points as well? I'm not familiar with the options available to repair plastic hulls.

Much appreciated.

Hey,

I used to have one of those. I was able to patch it by using 3M5300 on a oak piece of wood and gluing the wood to the hull. The oak was hard enough to handle being dragged and the 3M made a water tight seal. That lasted for 2 years until the rest of hull wore out. Then I spent $500 for a new one.
