Can anybody identify this 10ft raft

Got this raft for a winter project, its a old NOC rental bucket raft 10ft, no identifying numbers (probably covered by all the patches)

Thanks

Looks like it was built by Riken or Campways to me, don't have a guess on the model though. I would be surprised if it wasn't Hypalon.

Thanks, just wanted to get the right material to repair it with. This poor raft has been ridden hard and put up wet for sure.

Thanks everyone, I was planning on patching and using as a 2 person raft for small rivers, but this thing has more leaks than the Exxon Valdez. So far I have temporary patched at least 6 leaks just so I could air it up to find where else it is leaking, probably has at least 6-12 more leaks. I may just keep this one for patching my next project.

What size leaks? If they are pinhole, inland marine sells a product for plugging those from the inside, you remove the valves, add the liquid, put your valves back on, and fill the boat with air, then move the boat in all directions to spread the product evenly.
It is the only product of that type that will completely dry and not cause the rubber to stick to itself.

If they are bigger then pinhole the product will not work of course.

2 of the holes are at least 1/2" or larger (one was a stick through the bottom of the raft leaving a 3" hole there, then into the side air chamber). I believe that it has already had the leak product applied several years ago as it is rather crunchy when you squeeze the raft. The bottom has so many gashes, Im sure that is some of the other air leak issues.
