RE: Could you fill a dinghy with foam?

Tom, that's an interesting idea, and would work if you could get the material distributed so that as it expanded filled in the tubes. *However, it probably wouldn't hold up very well, since polyurethane foam once compressed doesn't decompress.
I thought about this too- I have a small leak on my front center tube I have'nt located to repair. But I'm with Delfin. Every time a tube got hit and crushed, it would stay crushed.
But it sure sounds possible, if the foam did not affect the Hypalon or PVC material.
