RE: Glueing davits to an achilles inflatable????
I think the should if applied right - preferably from new. The secret to not over-stressing the glue join in my view, and which I was not able to ensure, is that the pontoons remain fairly tightly inflated, so the glued area is not subjected to sheering forces from under-inflation buckling the joined surfaces. Ie, keep them well pumped up - repair leaks immediately. My problem was slowly leaking valves from poor valve design.
