ROFL... thought about. Gonna try that loctite glue and see what happens. If that doesn't hold, it's frankenstein time. I need a vinyl patch that looks like a band-aid.

I have used that same Loctite adhesive. The issue is going to be holding the seam together while it dries. If you just want a temporary repair, think about adding a piece of vinyl under the seam and then just gluing the edges down. It will not look the best, but would prevent it from getting worse.

I had the same issue on my boat so I over stitched it just to finish the season. The stitching just made the old and brittle vinyl crack and fall apart quicker. I ended up taking the boat to an upholsterer and having him recover it.

My advice would be to use some colored duct tape until you can get it recovered.

Post a picture and I might be able to help you. Is the vinyl too dry in the seam to blind stitch it?

I don't have a pic handy unfortunately, and the boats 20 mins from me. One side of the vinyl (the grey stuff) is cracking which is why it's pulling apart. The other side (white vinyl) is in good shape, so that would hold thread. Maybe I'll just get some white/gray duct tape and keep it ghetto fab. I'll try this loctite stuff and see what happens.

[quote=mzimme;1045642]I've heard of them, yes. When I called about my S&S back a couple years ago they wanted 3500 bucks to do that. Kinda steep for that tiny boat. They probably didn't realize how small it was though, so that quote was probably very high. QUOTE]


mzimme....G and J just quoted me $260 to re- upholster the back sit of my 96 that spilt its seem over the weekend. What do you think?

They are doing full recover on back seat base only. Is this a good price? Double welt om bottom. Said he would match original.
