tube cover repair on AF1

Post by akarmi1971 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 3:19 pm

I bougt my AF1 in DECATHLON Hungary in 2009. I used it spring to autumn, usually one day a week. 2 times at sea in Croatia, but most on lakes.
I stored semi-inflated in the garage and just packed away for the winter.
Now, I wanted to pack, I noticed the break in the "tube cover"
I attach the photos, please help on how I can fix it ?

I would take the patch that came in the patch kit and bring it to a seamstress to sew on over the area so that it is reinforced. Either that or you can contact Decathalon and they can get a hold of a replacement tube cover from the European distributor.
