And a No Smoking sign I hope! Don't set that can too close to the firepan!

Hadn't thought of the Pelican case melting, maybe I'll stick with what I have then. Maybe I'll put it inside of a pelican case or something like it (ie, rounded corners). I was thinking Pelican case to protect the raft more than anything...

Yo man my experience is that the shit will always leak so i would say never buy more than you need at one time. the fumes leak out even when they sit in a cool dry place like a cabinet. Unless your a commercial outfitter you just arent going to use that much at one time. as far as storing on a trip goes stick with one part adhesives to minimize your chemicals. you will want to redue the patch with 2 part when you get home but 1 part will due for a little while. but what ever you store it in keep it up right and dont flip and you should be good.

my boat is PVC. I had a very heavy lowish run down Marsh Creek and had to put on about 7 small patches at Dagger Falls. No MEk, just used the stabond and not a hot day. Checked it with soap recently and no leaks on any.

While it is probably good to clean with, I don't carry it with me anymore.

My kit lives in an ammo can that sits in my seat box. When I did carry MEK I put it in a fuel bottle for MSR and kept it upright in the same seat box but not in the ammo can.

Dont get your mek from someone who puts it in the wrong container. MEK eats the seals and even Home Depot got that on right.

Great bottles

I have had my MEK in one of these small HDPE Nalgene containers for around 12 months now and it does not leak (it is not always upright). And it looks like not much, if any has evaporated. - Detail
You can get them at most outdoor sports stores.
Do not use the hard "clearish" plastic bottles (like the ones you drink out of). Bad things will happen.
This goes in an ammo can with all the other necessities.
