I have an Achilles inflatable made out of hypalon. I bought to last year with three repaired spots and two of them are leaking. I decided to pull the patches off of all three and replace since the third one appeared to be close to coming off as well.
Many problem is getting that old glue off. I do have access to a hardware store but they do not have any of that Tuolene(spelled wrong I am sure). NSR suggests alcohol and I've tried that with minimal success and don't want to use all our alcohol since it belongs in the first aid kit.
I picked up a wire brush and some 180 grit sandpaper today and will try a little more of the alcohol pad, but does anyone have a different suggestion? I'm heading to Anchorage in two weeks to get supplies, but I really want to get this boat back in the water before then.
