At that time, however, it was a layered technology that used PVC and therefore did not correspond to our goal - to produce boats with our current technology using rubber, ie. without the use of PVC. At that time, there was no supplier who could produce drop-stitch material without PVC coating, so we abandoned the production of boats from drop-stitch material for some...
