    I have leaks in my drysuit boots, and I am trying to figure out the best way to go about fixing this. I have the boots that have a neoprene component, and I have 3 leaks where (2 on the right leg, see first 2 pictures, and 1 on the left leg) the rubber part of the boot meets the neoprene. I'd appreciate any advice on how to embark on this repair/project. Is aqua seal going to be enough? Thank you

    I'd bet the aquaseal will work for a while anyway.

    Time for new boots. Pony up and have them installed.

    If you take your time and do the prep according to best practices, the aquaseal will keep you going for a bit. But as others will attest, every patch job has its challenges and you may have to expose the surfaces a bit more to get the adhesion required for a durable seal.
