SB Raft - Maravia NW 1 - need floor repair / replace

Hey everyone,

I have a Maravia New Wave 1 self-bailing raft. 12' 6". Great boat.

Recently, the flat drop-stitched floor began to seperate. I suppose the internal stitches no longer adhere to the floor material. In any event, it forms a bubble. Not good.

Factory quoted me $1,000 to replace the floor. Ouch.

Any recommendations ? Repair ? Replace ?

Ask John Sells at Inflatable Technologies:


He's the best raft repairman on the Front Range.
