    Go to walmart and buy a vinyl repair kit. All you really only need a piece of vinyl and some vinyl glue/cement.

    What department would that be found in, hardware? Sorry to ask but the employees there are not always so helpful.

    Try Sporting Goods, but hardware might have it too. Vinyl cement is available anywhere, and all you need to add is a piece of vinyl to make the patch. Another option is a vinyl chair repair kit. It's the same stuff. You can also get suitable repair materials from Alaska Raft and Kayak on Tudor, across from Cattle Company, but their stuff might be a bit of an overkill for what you want to do.

    Thumbs up

    Think you called yesterday... How's the project coming along?

    More or less what I related yesterday --- You may concentrate on the problem you have easily identified already,,,, yet have other stuff like seams, valves, seeping as well. Any luck here?

    I did set aside some free yellow fabric remnants for ya for the repair, plus to have a little more on hand just in case... I'd also take up Chuck's free offer on trying Tear-Aid Tape w/ a little sterile towelette for the clean before application. You'll certainly have a use for Tear-Aid on this little boat.
