I applied the patch and rubbed it in place. 24-hours later 3/4 of the patch had lifted up. I re-applied the patched and applied heat to it the second time. This time the patch held and the tube held air, but after about 2 hours of use on the lake, it gave way and started leaking. It seems like a good product, but just doesn't bond well enough to take the abuse of a tube on the lake.

                    I purchased this product after many failed attempts with other products. Wish I would have just went with this one first. Its a little more expensive but well worth every penny when your kids depend on a tube to ride on their lake day.

                      I have a boat towable with a tear on the outside wrap, in the fabric. Its on the bottom in a higher stress area (but not near the actual tow point). Tear is only about 1/2".

                      would it be the TYPE A or B that i would use?

                        Thanks for your question. No this will not work on canvas. This product is formulated to adhere to vinyl.
                        For boat covers you will need item 75899, 38283, or 14149. All of these are excellent options.

                        If you have enough smooth surface area on each side of the seam then you may be able to get enough coverage for it to hold.

                        It depends on the material that has the hole. Kit A is for fabric such as polyester and nylon. Kit B is for vinyl.
