I have some small tears in the liner (boat is not carpeted) that I want to glue back down. The fabric will be glued straight to aluminum but that stuff is pretty stretchy. What should I use that won't eat up the material later on?

If it is the same vinyl boat flooring that I used on my G3, then I'd consider using this Permatex vinyl repair kit. Sounds like it would work, but I've never used it personally. regards, richg99

I am a fan of Weldwood Contact Cement.
If used properly, and applied as per directions,
it is a good product to hold stuff together.
Waterproof, flexible, does not get brittle over time.
When applied to two surfaces - it is a ONE TIME opportunity
to position the two pieces together - there is no second chance.
This product is designed to adhere a covering onto the substrate -
not to repair rips and tears - or to cosmetically hide damaged material.
it is an adhesive - a very aggressive adhesive - that does not adversely affect the material.

Read, Understand and Follow the instructions and directions on
the label of any products you may use.
If it says "stir thoroughly before use" - then, stir thoroughly before use.
