Repairing a Rubber Ducky - NRS Inflatable Bandit

Ahhhh, i took my be-loved out kayaking and borrowed my exes inflatable kayak. Damn if she didn't hit a rock that sliced open the bottom on the boat ... not a small gash but one that is a foot long and another that is 8 inches.

I need small help/ideas. is there anyone here in CO that can repair the bottom of the this inflatable?

It's an NRS Bandit.

thanks for any help

Sounds like she had it in for your Ex ... I don't think a patch that size is going to be easy to hide

Is this the newer urethane coated nylon? There is another thread or two talking about the durability of that material. Some say its not too durable.

How old is the boat? You might try and Get Nrs to repair or replace it.

My buddy has an Avon ducky its been through hell and high water and even sunk deflated against a pinning rock on the MFS and not even a scratch.

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
