    Default Pack Raft glues ,patches , D rings

    Hopefully Larry B. can chime in on this one as well as others with info as I'm sure I'm not the only newer Pack raft guy with these Qs.

    I have a PR-49 and plan on getting a smaller rig as a trailer at some point.

    maybe an Alpacka Scout.

    I know the Pr 49 is PVC and the Alpacka s are polyurethane.

    I know the glue that came with the 49 is a polyurethane MEK.

    So I would guess this glue can be used on Alpackas as well as the pr 49 ?
    Can it be used for D rings on both types ?
    Can PVC patch material be used on the Polyurethane Alpackas ?

    I read that Aquaseal should not be used as a patch glue or D ring glue since it needs air exposure for it's adhesive properties to work. More for smaller holes and such.

    looking for ways to repair both types and add d rings to both types utilizing as few different components as possible.

    CLIFTON glue will work well on either pvc or urethane. Just clean it well with THF or MEK before gluing. And the dryer the better.

    Thanks, I'll check that stuff out.
    Recommend Clifton to take along in the field as well?

    You can also use liquid urethane or the urethane tape for the pac-rafts. Either works well>

    Yeah man, use the PVC glue on either model for patches and repairs. I like to drop a loop-ring patch on each side about 1/3 of the length of the raft for an anchor point (midline on the sidetubes) on each boat. Then, strap the meat trailer across the top secured to the main PR-49 so that you have four points of contact security. This makes the boats rigid and prevents them from fish tailing on the go.

    I'm trying to attach a photo but the site isn't responding. Check out our webiste forum of the PR-49 and scroll through to find the shot of the meat trailer attachment.
