I have a borrowed Alaska outfitters Zodi that has a pin hole leak and a patch that is lifting off... the owner is aware of it and told me not to worry about it, but i would like to repair it for him... one of the tubes needs to be puffed up about every 8 hours or so to stay firm and takes nearly two days to go flat...
but i have never repaired one... and would like some preperation steps as well required material...
i have a repair kit for my Soar... but reading the tube wear thread... looks like there is some difference in material and such
Is it as simple as a inner tube type repair? rough up the patch and tube... allow glue to nearly set on each and stickem?
should it be done flat or puffed up full? or partially?
what should the surface be cleaned with prior too?
do i lift the old patch all the way off or go over the top of it? or trim off the loose part?
