The Journey

If he cares about the appearance of your boat, you must obtain patches that are the same color. A thick sewing needle. Six yards of 3 or 5 threads polyester cord. An additional tube of contact adhesive. Two simple knife.

Six brushes. A thick tip marker. An additional diaphragm to the valve (if your boat needs it). Spare parts for small parts that may lose or break in the journey. These articles constitute an emergency kit that should carry everywhere with your inflatable boat. A typical repair small if unlucky enough to find a leak in your inflatable boat, you must perform one minor repair so that your boat does not deflate or sinking. First thing you should do is to land as soon as possible. While leaks are generally small and insignificant, do not run the risk of one higher perforation that can deflate the boat suddenly.

Once it has reached the shore, let the pot dry, because the surfaces around the affected area must be dry to patch them correctly. Deflate the affected part, at the same time, so is easier to apply the patch and this proves most effective. Once dry the dry, apply patch is relatively a process simple. Your emergency kit should include a sandpaper or a stone for filing, you should use for smoothing the areas around the filtration and the bottom of the patch which will apply. This will allow that the glue will have a better grip and prevent it disengages when you return to take the boat to the water. Place the patch over the filtration, ensuring adequate clearance of the patch on the same filtration so that it is safe, and mark the position of the patch with a marker. Apply glue to the patch and the area where it will go, then press the patch firmly. Give the glue time to dry, and has already been completed. Then you are ready to return to your travel before being interrupted by this detail.
