How To: Patch a Hypalon Boat (5:09)

Properly patching a Hypalon raft or cataraft isn't difficult, but it does require specific tools, supplies and techniques. In this instructional video, the NRS Repairs Department shows you the materials, adhesives, solvents and skills you need to successfully glue a patch on your inflatable boat. This information applies to Hypalon, Pennel Orca and rubber inflatables. The same techniques can be used for gluing air-holding patches, D-rings and foot cups to your raft or cataraft. The video also includes tips for making temporary field repairs on the water.

How To: Inflatable Repair Adhesives Guide (4:16)

When repairing your Hypalon, PVC or urethane inflatable, or your plastic or composite kayak, it's vital that you choose the right adhesive and solvent for the job. Using the wrong materials will result in a poor repair and wasted effort. In this video, Josh from NRS Repairs shares an inflatable repair adhesives guide to help you understand when to use such glues as Clifton Hypalon, Shore, Stabond, Clifton Urethane, Vynabond and G/flex Epoxy. Solvents for repair prep are important too; you'll also learn when you can use toluene, MEK, acetone and alcohol.

How To: Find and Fix Inflatable Boat Valve Leaks (3:23)

Finding and fixing leaks in the valves on your inflatable raft, cataraft or inflatable kayak (IK) is an important skill for boaters. Here NRS repair guru Josh Gile demonstrates the steps with a Leafield C-7 inflate/deflate valve. You'll use basically the same steps with other types -- Leafield B-7, Halkey-Roberts, Summit and military valves.

Quick Tips | How to Repair a C7 Valve (0.50)

Top-quality Leafield C7 valves are found in all current-model NRS rafts, catarafts, kayaks and SUPs, as well as many other inflatables. One of the advantages of the C7 valve is how simple it is to repair. In this Quick Tips instructional video, the NRS experts show you how to repair a Leafield C7 valve quickly and easily.

video: How To: Replace a Raft Valve

How To: Replace a Raft Valve (4:03)

The valves in your inflatable raft, cataraft, kayak, SUP board, body board or pool toy is a critical part of its performance and longevity. If a valve fails for any reason it needs to be replaced. Here we show you how to do that, using a doughnut patch to cover the incisions you make to remove the valve's inner piece. This repair procedure works on an inflatable made of Hypalon, PVC, urethane or any other boat material.

video: How To: Clean and Repair a Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve

How To: Clean and Repair a Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve (3:01)

A leaky pressure relief valve can reduce the performance of your inflatable raft or kayak. In this instructional video, the NRS Repairs Department shows you how to inspect, clean and fix your pressure relief valve so you can get back out on the water. The Leafield A6 Pressure Relief (PR) valve prevents damage that can be caused by over-inflation in NRS and other manufacturers' inflatables. All self-bailing NRS rafts and kayaks come with an A6 PR valve in the floor. A leaky pressure relief valve is usually caused when grit or debris impedes the seal.

    Q:

    What is the difference between Neptune Gray and Gray? We have a West Marine Rib, and not sure which color to buy!
    Asked on 9/16/2014 by Laurie from Georgia

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Laurie, the Gray (the full name is Light Gray) is very light, almost an off-white. Neptune Gray is a darker, medium gray, quite similar to the gray Avon uses in their boats.

    Q:

    I have a Stearns inflatable kayak with a torn splash deck. Is this product good to use to repair that damage?

      A:

      John, I've done a web search, trying to find out what kind of material Stearns uses in their kayaks. I haven't found a definite answer but I suspect they use a PVC-coated fabric. Pennel Orca is a Hypalon material. Regardless, you don't need most of the items in a kit like this. Read this article to try to determine what the material is - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/boat_material_identification.asp - Then, give us a call, 800.635.5202, or email service@nrs.com, for help in getting the repair materials you need. We're experts at this and can help you get the boat back in service.

  • NRS Pennel Orca Raft and Inflatable Kayak Repair Kit

    Q:

    This says it is for on the water/outside usage. What I need is a complete kit for doing a long term repair as outlined in your "Hypalon Repair Instruction". Can I get all of the items in a kit or would I have to order them separatedly? Are all of the items available from NRS? (with obvious exceptions such as gloves, pencil, eye protection, respirator, sandpaper, towel) Looks like i would need tube material, adhesive, accelerator, roller, and toluene.

      This is intended as a repair kit you pack along with you for emergencies. On our website, look under "Repair" on the left hand navigation for the things you need. If you have questions about the job, just give us a call and we can walk you through it.

      A:

      Yes you can get everything in that kit for a long term repair. This is dependent on the size of the repair though. I have used this same repair kit many time on small repairs, on and off the river for permanent fixes. good luck!

              The grey color is almost white so not a good match as far as what I got vs what was advertised. Would be nice if the glue can was a little bigger. I used it to patch and re attach the some of the bumper on a rib boat. Good kit all Around

                I always carry this in the boat, even on mellow day trips. It's compact and since it is waterproof you can throw it in a drop bag instead of taking up drybox room. Haven't had the "opportunity" to field-repair my boat yet (knock on wood), but this has everything you need to get'r done.
