Well I think it is off to Sotar this afternoon to get some of what they call "liquid lexitron" or something like that. I am not exactly sure what it is. I am pretty sure that is their proprietary name and it is marked up a bit. If I new what it was I might be able to get it cheaper at a paint store where I get MEK.
Either way it is all good. The raft saw way more action than most have before I picked it up. I have gotten two seasons of decent use out of it and considering what I paid for the whole set up it was well worth its price.
It is just the price tag of a new one that makes me cringe.
The good news is that after going over my plans to fix the raft, my wife has put her foot down and demanded I get a new raft. That I should not be someone who would risk her and my children's safety just to save some money.
