So, I glued an eye back on, as well as gluing the scupper back together. when i checked in the morning, one side was flat, as well as the floor. i found the leak in the floor. It was a 3/8 glue seam that wraps around the drive. It looks like the whole seam is going. How it lasted this long is a miracle. The second leak looks like several seams going at once. I bought it new in 2016, and was hoping to get a few more years out of it. It lived in an apartment, and was never left in the sun or a trunk. Has anyone done a complicated repair like this?. The floor looks irreparable, and even if i manage to fix it, will the other seams go the same way. It was a great saltwater fishing kayak,very tough, i was surprised to find that seam. I have attached two photos. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Brian

And, how do you post pictures?. And what is going on with all the font colors.?. Smillies ? I would say this is run by schoolgirls, but if it was, I would be very easy to post photos. Cheers, Brian

1. Can't see your pics.

2. Your boat is under warranty for 2 years. See your dealer to file a claim.

3. Is this an inflatable? the plastic kayaks don't have seams.

You trashed the syntax for your photos... go into edit mode on your first post and fix both img tags and all the strangeness will go away. I saw your photos fine this way.

Also in context it looks like you probably didn't mean 2016 purchase? BTW there is extensive writeup on someone repairing well seams if you search or scroll down for inflato topics 1-3 years ago.

I fixed the URLs and image code.

Corrected code is as below:

Yeah, the forums software is a bit aged, but transitioning to new can lose a lot of content.

Thanks for fixing my pictures mat. I bought the kayak in 2012. I contacted the shop where i purchased it, waiting to here back. It does not look good. It was a great kayak, but now that i can see how the floor ties into the well, I would never buy another one.
