Bug Juice Application??

We got a bottle of "bug juice" internal boat sealer and we're wondering if we just squeeze it through the military valves and then re-inflate it and roll it around to distribute? I guess it works like fix-a-flat and seels small leaks from the inside. Anyone have any advise on the application of this stuff?

Thanks

Just spray it into the valves and then make sure to tip the boat over and shake it all around to ensure a good coating on the inside of the tubes. This stuff works really well at sealing minor seeps/leaks.

I used some stuff called Inflatable Boat Sealant from West Marine, on an old PVC glued Odyssey several years go. Same idea, squirt in through valves and roll around. I put it in there and rolled the boat around every 20 minutes or so for about 4 hours per the instructions. I was trying to cure several small seam leaks. It worked and I got another 2 years out of the boat before it the seams went totally T-up.

Shapp,
How big a boat you got? Was one of those quart bottles enough for the boat?
