Hello Buzz,

Interesting question. Has anyone had an experience using FlexSeal Liquid for patching abrasions to the bottom of a raft? not using it to patch holes but just the scrapes to the black bottom, Also has anyone used it to coat plywood for decking? Looks like it could be a sweet option! Any advice helps, on the website it specifically says that it works on Hypalon Material.

My friend has had great success with flex seal on the old raft I gave him. The raft had some pin hole leaks and seam issues (Earth brand raft). Two cans of Flex seal took care of the issues.

I think flex seal will be good to reinforce wear spots.

Not sure how flex seal will work on plywood

It will not stick well to plywood, paint or metal like your aluminum dry box (rubs off easy).

Now if your raft was made of screen it would definitely work, just like the commercial​!!! Zack we need a reply from you on this one. Lol. Hey personally I'm for it if your boat is old and worn enough. If not I'd have Zack coat it with urathane.

When my vinyl soft seat starting cracking and getting water inside it, I tried to fix it with Flex Seal. It took several coats to fill the cracks. I let it dry for a week before using it on Westwater. Perhaps it needed more drying time but my black dry pants ended up with a white outline of my ass. It has stuck really well to the dry pants and I can only bring myself to continue wearing them thanks to a black Sharpie. The mess the Flex Seal made of my vinyl seat continued to peel off and I ended up replacing it. My take away is that it doesn't stick well to smooth, flexible surfaces.

The correct product for repairing multiple pinholes on a raft is called System 6 and is a 2 part urethane product that is either rolled or sprayed on. There are several threads on this already on the Buzz and I also posted some pics of a raft I used the product on extensively fairly recently.

Flex seal works great on cracked sink drain pipes and NoCo it does come in clear or black if you want to try again ;)
