hole in neck gasket

Somehow tore a hole in the neck gasket but it didnt rip to the edge can this be aquasealed and not worry about it or is it one of those things that you should just move on and have it replaced?

I've been paddling with one in my wrist gasket for couple weeks now. My bet is it will go eventually but aquaseal will prolong the event. Maybe make it past the run-off when things start to warm up? I've been paddling the shorty all week on CC.

LMaciag, its Dane's and I think he did it and is blameing it on me.

Dave, little smear on both sides?

I've used Aquaseal on neoprene dive glove fingers before and it is still holding today. 11 years since applied!

Lover's quarrel? You wearing Dane's clothes? Or did you put it on accidentally because all your gear is identical???

Shouldn't throw stones as I've now joined your Jackson/Burn/Kokatat cult.

Ouch, damn! I forgot my drytop and borrowed his spare and then proceeded to tear a whole in the neck and I am trying to cheap out and just fix it and not replace the gasket.
