Dry top Neck Gasket repair

I have a nice Kokatat dry top so I want a good repair. The neck gasket riped completly. Has anyone had good luck repairing themselves? Should I send it back to Kokatat or take it into a shop? If shop is the way to go does anyone know any shops on the front range?

Don't do it yourself....

Bring it to Confluence Kayaks 303 433 3676
I do gasket repair on a daily basis.
I am currently doing a kokatat and take great pride in how the gaskets turn out, Been replacing them for years.

If you are willing, try using your floatation to hold it out. Once dried, you can easily deflate your float bag to remove it. Just a suggestion I heard recently--if you do it, tell us how it worked!
