inflatable boat

Recommended Posts

Will super glue work for patching a small hole in an inflatable boat? I found 3 very small holes in mine from one of my cats dang claws lol. I have an old air mattress I cut patches out of and I'm trying rubber cement right now but I hate having to wait 24 hours.

No. Go to Walmart and get an air mattress patch. 

This. Both the material and the glue are better for the types of material your boat is made out of. I tried superglue on my Sea Eagle, and then later tried a Intex patch kit....the patch kit was substantially better suited for the job. You've got a nice boat, use the best to repair it.

Thanks guys. I cut some penny size patches out of my air mattress and glued them down last night so hopefully by tonight they will be solid enough to go fishing tomorrow.

Update. Just in case anyone else runs into this problem. Since the nearest wal mart is 2 hours from where I live and I didn't wanna wait for something to come in the mail I went to the hardware store and looked through the super glues and found the loctite go2 glue. I have the boat inflated and it seems to be holding air. I did the soapy water test and seen no bubbles. The glue is apparently water, shock and heat resistant. So hopefully Monday or Tuesday goes without a hitch.
