You must clean the area really well before the glue will stick. first, soap and water the area, then rinse. then, alcohol to wipe clean and dry the water from the area.
then, use cpvc pipe primer (used by plumbers) to clean the area and the inside of the patch.
then, vinyl cement (comes with intex boats) or "seal all" (bought at home depot). apply liberally on both surfaces and hold firmly into place. put a weight ontop if you can to hold the patch. let dry for a few hours. should be good to go.
i've patched my intex mariner about 8 times. patches all hold well.

You might try taking it to a tire store and see if they can patch it with one of the hot Patches they use on inertubes.

Plastic drum has a small hole, how can this be repaired?

Hi Michael:
Depending on the type of plastic this can be tricky.
There are several things that you could try, and if one does not work, go on to the next. Clean thoroughly and sand with coarse paper to roughen it a bit to provide a better bond.
- PVC cement
- ABS cement
- Model airplane plastic cement.
- Vinyl cement
- JB Weld
I would try the JB Weld first, just because it is a great product.
Any fix may be temporary and could fail, so I would stay close while any test laundry was being undertaken.
Hope it works.

Air ring leaking on 18 foot pool....cant find leak...if it is the seam how do i fix it???

To be honest, ive seen 20-30 customers come to my company looking to fix this same problem. Weve tried vinyl patch after vinyl patch, and several different cement fixes. Nothing works.
The best results ive had are with a simple vinyl liner repair kit.
The most important thing is to let it sit for 48 hours before reinflating, but even this fix was only temporary.

Long story short, you get what you pay for, and intex is the cheapest pool systems on the market for a reason. The air ring always starts to leak right after the warranties are up, and the Intex company just plain out doesnt care.

Wish I had better news.

Best way to locate and repair a slow leak in a intex seahawk 500 inflatable

Get some bubble bath, mr. bubble, or just dish soap, thinned out with water, spray it all over the boat, you will get it cleaned up and find the leak at the same time. When you see th e stream of bubbles coming out, mark it, get it dried off and patch it up. I think they use a contac cement on the Hypolon boats, or is it neoprene? Do you have a patch kit? Any pieces of material for a patch? The hardware store has pvc rubber used for shower pans, that might stick on there, clean it good with laq thinner, and brush on some glue, both pieces, let dry, then slap them together. You will know if it will work. Or else look up the manufacturers recommendations. he boat supply might have patch kits in stock. Hope this helps.

Punctured air bedsmall puncture and have guest staying and need to repair it

Best thing I have found that works good is a patch for a bicycle tire. They have other small patches that are very similar, I just find the bicycle patches more convenient and usually cheaper. Hope this helps.

Is it compatible 3.5 HP engine with the boat? (mariner 4) if yes , when i used %30 of power just alone back side go down and can not control properly . engine is TOHATSU M 3.5 S

Your motor is too large.

For the Intex Mariner 4 Intex recommend an absolute maximum of 3HP (2,2kW) and the motor must not weigh more than 40lb (18,2kg).

Those limits assume that you are using the Intex motor mount kit (Part No. 10658) and that the boat is correctly loaded and inflated.

In reality and from experience I would personally recommend 2HP maximum power and to keep the motor as lightweight as possible. Although the Intex Mariner 4 can take a motor mount, it's really a rowboat and is not suited to using a motor for extended periods, but just as a convenient tender to a larger boat it's fine.

Can Intex mariner 4 carrie an engine Yamaha 8 HP with a modificated mount if the engine have 60 pounds?

no. my 28 lb 3.5 tohatsu strains the pvc material that the tubes are made out of pretty well. the weight and thrust of the motor pulls pretty hard on these tiny little rubber "feet" glued to the tubes. I usually dont even run full throttle as it looks like i will pull the motor mount feet right off the tube. I couldn't imagine a bigger, heavier motor than what i am running working out well in the long run.
i have the intex mariner 4, btw.

Small hole

You need a patch of at least the same quality as the item to be patched. If the patch is of the same material it's compatability with the cement isn't a problem. The cement or the adhesive needs to be the best you can get as the quality of any repair is only as good as the materials used.

Canoe has damage on the front bow.

Bondo would probably work.

Also, you could laminate a few pieces of something like vinyl siding/facia board over the hole. If the canoe is ABS, the vinyl siding cold be "welded" / fused to the ABS with PVC primer & solvent/cement.
