Inflatable kayak patching

johnshikr
I have an Intex K2 Explorer with a hole. This one is on the bottom in a ridge on the vinyl. The patch that they provide is like scotch tape. I want to know what the best option is out there to repair the hole. Hope to make it stronger than before. Somebody suggested a fiberglass repair kit. I don't mind it being hard and rigid unless it prevents proper inflation. Thanks for any suggestions. I tried gorilla glue and a piece of either vinyl or pvc. Just something I found in a junk drawer.

I have/had a Saturn and sea eagle inflatable and I've patched both with the kits they provide. very durable. Sea Eagle has them on their website in the care maintenance sub section. I'm sure most kayak stores probably have a similar patch kit available.

Woe! Hold up a minute let's do this right. Go to a Zodiac/Amason web site. Look up inflatable accessories D-ring mounts, rope guides, lifting kit rings, epoxy glue kits with flexible patch kits. All inflatable stuff. Tony

Zodiac are Hypalon, Intex is PVC. Would glue for the Hypalon repair be correct for a PVC repair?

Good question! Zodiac also has PVC glue and glue for Hypalon, either would work. Glue is glue inflatable wise. Tony
