Jackson Plastic Repair

I heard a rumor that some people were using some sort of epoxy to weld/repair Jackson boats. I have 4-5' crack on the bottom of my super hero. I know I can drill the ends and bituthane it but just looking for other options.

you cant repair them they suck. the string backband sucks too. bituthene works for a while but eventually the boat will fall apart. why do they use this shitty plastic

Paul... Sorry to hear that you think JK sucks. I think we make pretty darn good boats...
A three year warranty exist for all kayaks made in the 2010 season. Elites are warrantied for the first 2 years at 100% and third year the boater pays 20% of retail... With our SL's, the boater gets the first year 100%, 2nd year you pay 20% and third year you pay 40%.

I think that makes it the best warranty in the ww industry...

Gold Camp, if you don't want to go with the bituthene route and your warranty is expired, there is a material that I saw recently that claims to be able to adhere to ANY plastic. I have no idea what the name of it is off hand, but saw it advertised in a Canoe and Kayak mag. I went to the website and reviewed a f'n heeeelarious video where they huck boats of an overpass onto cement after repairing the bow and the stuff holds up to those types of impacts.
I or JK as a whole have never tested it, but they claim any type of plastic. Oh, I remember the website sold a lot of Marine type products??? Sorry I don't have more info for yeah...

Looks like should hold up, but I have really no idea.

Are the super linear boats that Jackson is now making weldable?
