Large Rips or Tears

If you have experienced a large rip or tear in the fabric (larger than 1 inch in length), or you have a puncture near any seams, it is important that you do not attempt to repair the boat on your own. You’ll need to take it to a professional repairperson, who will repair the boat by gluing a patch both inside and out. This applies to hand-glued seams and thermobonded seams. Putting on a patch at the seam on your own will not make your vessel airtight once more.
