Dry Top Repair Question

I was getting ready for my first session of the season, and I noticed that my IR semi-dry top had a hole in the back, and then I noticed another hole and then another. It took me a few mintues to realize what was going on - a mouse had eaten its way through to get at a power bar that had been sitting in the vest pocket all winter. Guess I won't be leaving food in my dry top any more.

I haven't ever had to get a dry top repaired before. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how or where to get it repaired. It is still in great shape otherwise I would just get a new one.

I would talk to IR - maybe they can give a replacement patch to glue on or something. Most of the repair done to drytops that I have seen has been gasket related and not the shell itself....

Confluence Kayaks does replace gaskets, they might have seen an issue like yours or have a better suggestion.
