The RecRepair Permanent Boat Repair Patch is a tough, formable patch that excels in repairing holes and damage to kayaks, canoes, wave runners, car top carriers, coolers, ATVs, off road motorcycles, RVs and more. This patent pending composite patch can be used to repair just about anything. The RecRepair Permanent Boat Repair Patch is rigid at room temperature, but when heated, the material becomes very pliable which allows the user to conform the material to repair any shape. But unlike tape, the patch becomes rigid after its shaped and then cooled, creating a durable, water-resistant, structural repair that will not crumble or peel off. It is as simple as heat, peel, and apply.
This material is great! I used it to make a flange to reinforce the base of a Hobie kayak sail mast receiver that had some hairline cracks at the base (inside the hull) where it's molded into the hull material. Heated it slightly to cut easier with large scissors, then used a heat gun to get hot enough to flex and put into place. Worked like a charm!
A kayak with a hole in it was a gift from my girlfriends mother but this patch with proper trimming a little sanding and some marine epoxy did the trick no leaks what so ever. I definately reccomend wearing nomex or other heat resisting gloves for the application but it worked like a charm.
