If you are like me, you may have several creekboats in various stages of destruction strewn around the garage. If you have a destroyed Jefe Grande you are willing to part with... I want it. I'll drop you some cash, beer, or weld up another boat for you in exchange. I'm in Denver, but willing to come pick it up from you.

This season I switched from the nomad to the grande, and I need grande welding stock and some outfitting parts and pieces for standard colorado mank boat repairs. Out of necessity, I've gotten pretty handy with my plastic welder, but I need plastic from destroyed boats to use for welding materials. I've got plenty of broken nomads in the garage to fix up nomads, but nada for my grande.

Much appreciation to the fellow boater who helps me out! Shoot me a PM or post.

Its best to use the same type of plastic for welding. I don't really care about color, but boat manufacturer and type will give best results. The melting points of nomad and jefe plastic seem to be a bit different. Best strength will be like to like plastic. I also want back up outfitting as I break seats, thigh braces etc. If I had to use the nomad plastic as a last resort, I would, but its a last resort...

I have a couple of nomads that are severely cracked with multiple failed welds and multiple cracks, huge gaping cracks upon cracks, and in my estimation almost beyond salvaging for paddling. One got raped by OBJ, the other by SSV. I'll gladly trade you one for a destroyed Jefe. If you only want to take it on a lake, you could probably bitchithane or duct tape it up. 1st rock hit on a river, and its titanic creek boating...
