This past weekend I was out on Saturday when a storm picked up. Started heading back to the dock, probably 15-20 mph winds and I was traveling abou 15mph.. The wakeboard was clamped in the rack and just got torn out of it and bounced off of the sundeck. Now I have a small tear to repair.

Has any one used anything to repair the vinyl?

You have local franchises who work for new/used car dealers that repair carpet, plastic panels, cloth/vinyl/leather seats and will come to you to do it. Check the yellow pages under Automotive Repair or go to a local new/used cars dealer and ask the Used Car Manager who they use for repairs on their new/used cars.

I had a small tear on my sunpad (1/2"), unscrewed the hinges and took it to a local repair shop (specializes in boat repair - fiberglass, vinyl, etc ). I think it was $60 or $70, but it was worth it to avoid a larger tear the next time someone stepped on it. You CAN NOT see the repair whatsoever and you should be able to expect that from a good vinyl guy.

I still have to get this done, especially since I might be upgrading over the winter. I think I may just remove the sunpad to take it to the repair shop too. A lot easier then just towing the boat.

CRAZY GLUE! One small piece at a time. Put the tube in the end and hold together. Do the same thing until you have reached the other end. Crazy Glue the tear millimeter by millimeter.;)

How much is it for your crazy glue services, if its just beer I think we can work something out.

Just try it! Sure I will drink! Get the Crazy Glue on the outside of the tip. Slide it in at the end and hold the tear together. Work your way to the other end. Believe me it would be cheaper to hire a vinyl repair guy than to buy me beer!;)

It is faster than you think. Use Gel and try not to glue your fingers to the seat! Less is more!
