What does a repair cost?
As with any repair is depends on what has to be done. Our
work is done on a time and material basis. We can give you an estimate over
the phone based on your description of the damage you explain to us at NO charge, or an in shop estimate at a nominal fee
(basically an hours worth of labor to pressure test or test run) and inspect
the inflatable boat or outboards. This fee for the estimate is of course
included in the repair cost as it needs to be done so we know what to
repair. More often than not where you may think your problem is one hole
there may be 2 or 3. We will tell you up front whether or not
we think your inflatable boat or outboard is worth repairing.
Can your inflatable boat
be repaired? Generally the answer is YES, however, the real
question is it worth it. This is a very subjective issue, but we
will help you address it.
Some general guidelines:
Floor coming PVC Inflatable Boats is a very
popular repair - Once the bottom starts coming unglued from the
tube it needs to be completely removes and reglued. This is very
time consuming because all the old glue must be removed, and
getting the bottom back in the right place is a technique
Small puncture or cut (less than 1/2" long -
can usually be easily repaired with a simple exterior patch.
Large cut, tear or mouse hole (over 1" in
length or diameter) - require both an internal and exterior
patch where the internal patch is for air retention, while the
exterior is for cover, and air retention.
Re-tubing an inflatable boat is quite expensive
- to the point where it is not really worth considering unless
the boat is 12' or longer
