older odysseys from the mid 80's were hypalon rubber,and say "toyo rubber co" on boat serial # tag,and were made in japan;newer ones are PVC,made in korea/china---if you dont know what youve got,use the universal glue---2 part stabond.if you post a photo,i probably can i.d. it.hope that helps
no---thats the biggest mistake boaters do.hardware PVC glue is not flexible when dried(its meant to bond stiff plastic pipes only);raft PVC glue is flexible when dried(examples---vynabond,stabond,clifton urethane glues,etc.).
