Boat Repair

Thanks for all the info. I am on the hunt to find bitchithane roofing tape I'll let all know how it goes, if you see me on the side of the road checking the quality of the road cones you'll know I'm on plan B.

Did some research and I think this is a similar, if not superior, alternative:

Looks like it comes in a number of different sizes and applications

bitchithane works for a short period of time...especially if the boat is made of dagger. The problem with Polyethylene is that nothing bonds with it...not even the plastic expoxy mentioned above. The only real fix for a polyethlyene boat is to plastic weld it. I fixed a 4 inch gash in my dagger CFS by welding it. Rented a heat gun for $6 a day and cut plastic from the cockpit of the boat. Worked great. The Poly welds are actually stronger than the plastic around it.

Good luck.
