But… all that being said, I have nothing to lose at this point… Thanks for the link. Added it to my wish list and will be doing an order soon. Tim
This is the product I've used on tent seams, for sealing as opposed to repair. Texture is.like thin model glue.

Talking Might try ShoeGoo

I've found ShoeGoo (or similar sounding brands) can repair shoes, extending the life of favorite comfortable shoes:
1. I've reglued the uppers to the soles when they are separating.
2. Added thickness to the sole – over a hole, or confined the ShoeGoo with a 'dam' of heavy tape to square up a worn-down heel. Yeah, I can be a real cheap-skate!http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/im...ilies/grin.gif

The material sticks to most things, and remains slightly flexible when cured (24-72 hours). The repairs have lasted for months to years. It's an easy thing to try, it would probably stick to vinyl, and it might even work.http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/im.../whistling.gif

Thank you. Another good suggestion. I even have ShoeGoo in the garage and didn't think of it. Tim

I'll second the shoe goo suggestion!
I've repaired my rubber hunting boots multiple times extending there life by two years, finally broke down and had to buy a new pair. But under the extreme conditions hunting boots see compared to a cushion, I'd bet it would work well!
