I have worn a 1/4" hole in my Stohlquist dry suit. Any idea how to patch it?

and I'd imagine a piece of nylon/dacron or something if so inclined, if it's a wear hole and not a tear. When I paddled harder and farther away, I always brought a coffee can with gaskets and glue, and my aqua seal helped a few guys out with tears. Being a canoeist, I was always unscathed ;-).

The peel-off backing ripstop tape works well for small patches. Round the corners of the patch and then put a bead of Aquaseal around the edges and over the hole itself on the inside behind the patch. You can usually get packages of the tape at camping good stores (Coghlans is one brand) or sewing departments.
