Avon Patch Material

Avon community or patching wizards - I recently bought a 1987 Avon and I'm looking to make it air tight with material from the same era and buy a little extra to have on hand. Anyone out there have an old boat they are using as patch material or beta on where to get some?

Clavey might have older Avon material. I'd give them a try. If they don't, you can get hypalon material from NRS or Hyside. Also, Stabond will work on both PVC and Hypalon. Works nicely if you are trying to put PVC on hypalon...

Thanks for the thoughts. I didn't know you could trow PVC on Hypalon good to know. I carry a medium Hyside sheet for an emergency in the field I'm just trying to match it up right since I have the time this winter.

Try AAA. We bought some patch material from them a few years ago for our '87 Avon and it was a perfect match
