Inflatable Boat Repairs

We are your local specialist for inflatable boat repairs, serving Whangarei and wider Northland. Here’s some of the problems you might encounter and what we can do to fix them:


Often caused by fish spines – snapper are the worst offenders! Minor punctures might seem easy to repair, but we recommend you bring your boat in to us for even the smallest patch. We use industrial grade, two part adhesives and only the best quality PVC or hypalon fabric for our repairs. We also control the heat and humidity to ensure good adhesion.

Split Seams

A seam can give way when a boat is over-inflated. As the day heats up, air inside the pontoons will expand. Always start the day with a fairly soft boat and you’ll avoid this problem. If this advice comes just too late to help you – bring your boat in and we’ll put it right.

Loose Fittings

Some glue used in the manufacture of dinghies in the past has not stood the test of time. One of our most common repair jobs is to reattach handles and other fittings that have worked off the pontoons. It’s usually an easy job and many customers use the opportunity to have them refastened in more convenient positions and to add new fittings at the same time.

UV Degradation

We know our Kiwi sun damages our skin and over time it also depletes the fabric used to make inflatable boats. We can resolve this with a spray on product that fixes the porosity in fabric damaged by UV rays.

Loose Transom

Carrying a heavy outboard, and general wear and tear can loosen the transom board away from the pontoons. This can be a complex repair, but it’s worthwhile on any boat with more than a couple of years’ life left in it.

Leaking Floor

Leaks in air floors are easily fixed, but sometimes it’s wet feet that are the problem and we can resolve that too.

The Great Mystery

Occasionally we can spend days searching for a leak. But we’re nothing if not persistent and because of that we guarantee your boat won’t leak when you take it home – or we’ll fix it again for free. We like to keep the boat for 24 hours after we have repaired it just to be sure there are no further leaks.
