Hole in raft floor- how to get water out?
Did a quick search and didn't find any info... so here it goes:
I got three small gashes, about 1" long each and all close to each other, encompassing about a 2" diameter circular area, on the bottom of the floor in my raft (Achilles, hypalon). We had to do a real quickie patch job on the river, and there was no time to get the water out of the floor at the time. I removed the patch that we put on then, and I've been trying to drain the water out of the floor through the small gashes. I have the raft slightly elevated now, with the lowest spot roughly where the gashes are to try to get the water out.
So... is there a better way to get all the water out? I know that leaving water in the floor can deteriorate the glue on the seams of the floor, so I want to make sure it gets dry.
