Rideking rafts

I jumped the gun on a boat before researching it more and need help. I purchased a rideking raft a few weeks ago used and went to inflate it to clean up. After washing it I found a hole in the bottom on a main chamber. Correct my terminology if I'm wrong new to the rafting world. I need to get some glue and patch to fix it which didn't seem bad but ..... Does anyone know what it's made of so I can buy the glue?

I do not think I have ever heard of rideking rafts, at least in the whitewater world. This leads me to believe you may have to go out to your inflatable pool guy and get a vinyl patch. Any chance you meant Riken?

No it is a rideking I can't find anything about them on the Internet either. Not really sure? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That's not a Riken. It's an old Legacy, which either started out as Legacy, or Rideking. It's hypolon material - No question. Patch it accordingly.

I learn something new every day.

It does look like you have one new Leafield C7 Valve.

Looks like an antique. Fortunately, hypolon lasts forever...almost.

Can you post a close-up pic of the name plate and logo that are on the boat?
