Fix my Creek Boat!!
Broken creek boats suck, and unfortunately I have one. I broke it a while ago - petoned the front end in and cracked the bow a little. I fixed it once by melting some of the boats plastic into the cracks and smoothing it out and then put a big ass nose cone over it and gluing the crap out of it.
This made my boat really attractive and worked for a season and a half, but I have been using it quite a bit more this season and it has cracked in the same places again.
Unfortunatley I am a dirtbag kayaker and a student - doubley poor - and I can't afford a new boat. I need to fix this one again and hopefully fix it right. What is the best way to do this, should I just melt the plastic again or is there something else. I don't have a plastic welder but do have a heat gun which is what I used the first time. One guy I paddled with said he used milk jugs to melt to his boat to seal the cracks. Not sure if this would work or what to do, any help would be rad. Thanks
