    Same "boat". I used silicon sealant and filled once. (this is our spare bag) and we don't fill it totally full, and the valve like that I made the top so it doesn't have as much weight on it all the time.

    Our bags are pretty much the same material that they make river rafts out of. I have to believe that they can repair a river raft, so I don't see why they couldn't repair a bag. Maybe patch the hole you have now and add a new port?
    Actually was just looking at that. That may be Plan D. Just having a hard time stomaching carving up a $330 bag...

    That works well but don't let a line get twisted or it will pull out. I have to put mine back with some 5200.

    I have had good luck adding ports.
    I ordered one of those in a 90 degree since the port is in a tight spot but also with the quick disconnect end so I can still remove and get the bag out easily. Hoping that along with a good adhesive will do the trick. I read about using an abrasive wheel to rough up the bag surface and give the glue a better bite to bond.

    Going to keep trying until something works!

    Berg, try one of these, with that glue, straight or 90 should certainly be worth a try. I added a vent to my two port center bag a few years back and it worked well.

    Problem is the port itself that is heat seated to the bag actually ripped. So I doubt any amount of gluing I would do would hold too long.

    Just ripped the whole thing out last night and put in a 90* flow rite 1-1/8" bulkhead style fitting (looks like a thru hull). Then swapped the fitting on the hose to a straight flow rite 1-1/8" quick connect so I can still get the bag out easy. Gooped it with 5200 and cranked it all down tight. It "looks good" but who knows if it will hold.

    (gouged it up a bit with a channel lock - only thing I had that was big enough for that nut!)



    I read that the 5200 takes 7 days to fully cure (urgh) but this repair is only going to be about 36 hours old before it gets put to the test. Crossing fingers....

    I told you that I had some extra 5200 fast cure and that home depot sells the 5200 fast cure for $9.
