Product Description

Our sealant finds leaks too small to find!

It's specially formulated for use with inflatable boats, rafts and tow toys. This sealant forms a bond with the interior fabric of the inflatable, stopping or "sealing" slow leaks and preventing future leaks from developing.

In one easy step, leaks are cured from the inside, which are virtually impossible to find from the outside. Our Inflatable Boat Sealant is the only product of its kind which allows for future deflation of your inflatable (for storage, etc.) without the skin sticking to itself and making re-inflation virtually impossible. Bottle contains one (1) quart of sealant.

Directions for use: Inject into valve and then tumble boat to distribute inside the tube.

Make sure you get any water out of the tubes before using this product. We wasted the first "batch". Also, be prepared to clean up a mess of the product that oozes through porosity. Finally, we were unable to put product in tube without removing the valves--which in and of itself was a bit of a challenge. Took 3-4 applications to finally seal the holes. The good news is that it works and saved an otherwise unusable dinghy.

tried to use to seal small leak on sea eagle 8. Put in full bottle rather than 8 oz. Followed directions and turned every which way. Unfortunately the next day leak still there. It just seems that there is so little fluid that it cant cover all of the area within the boat to find the leak. Maybe just luck of the draw that if you happen to cover that exact spot where the leak is, but there is alot of surface area and very little fluid and the reason you use this is that you can't find the leak to begin with so no idea where it is. And at almost 60 bucks a bottle, I would not do it again.

              Comments about West Marine Inflatable Boat Sealant:

              Second dinghy I had to fix slow leaks on, worked great both times.
              Was getting soft in 4 days. Three weeks after use and still inflated .

              Be sure too roll the dinghy 360 degrees sideways and end to end to cover all areas. I made sure all areas were
              covered twice and suspected leaks three times.

                      I used this product on a 20 year old 8'6" hypalon inflatable that had a seam leak that was only made worse by what the previous owner used to fix it. What he used was flaking off and taking the hypalon with it. Since I only intended to use the boat for an extended weekend in the keys I used spray paint on the bare canvas and Slime tire sealant to slow the leak. After the fun of the weekend even with a leaking inflatable I decided to chance it and use this stuff to seal up the boat. I followed the instructions exactly using about 3/4s of the bottle split between the two chambers and after 4 months she's holding air perfectly. It has lived in the garage since sealing it up and just used it on a short trip to Lake Okeechobee where I never had to add air. This stuff is amazing to say the least. I should also mention I never did anything to remove the Slime tire sealant or do anything to section that I gave the Krylon touch to. This stuff is magic.

                          I had a slow leak (significantly softer half an hour after inflation) in the right chamber of my inflatable dinghy, and could not find it with soapy water. In desperation, I turned to this product, though I was leery about the price, especially not knowing if it would actually work. I followed the instructions to the letter, and immediately noticed sealant bubbling out of a pinhole that did not show up with soapy water. Per the instructions, I lowered the pressure to stop the bubbling, wiped up the excess, then continued turning the boat over every half hour for four hours. Finally, I inflated to full pressure and watched to see if it would hold. Hours later, it was still holding. This product saved my boat, as I was almost to the point of throwing it away!

                            I put this in an old Achilles I bought for a trip. It held air the entire trip. After I got home I folded the boat up and it sat for almost 2 years. I inflated it 2 weeks ago and it held tight with no loss of air at all. This was a great bargin for $60.00.
                            I was expecting it to leak after sitting so long and was going to buy more sealant. No Need. A Great Product.

                            I did not want to buy another dingy, so this was the only way to extend it's life. Worked great and was not hard to use. Just took about 3 hours of flipping.
