  You don't want to be running rapids in

the wilderness unless those rapids are *incredibly* easy in light of your proven ability.

West Epoxy markets a field repair kit. Others may also. Most repairs can be done with tape. Our first canoe camping trip was 12 nights in Quetico, and we never more than scraped our huge FG boat. If you do buy a field repair kit, read through the instructions before hand, and at least rehearse mentally how you would go about it.

But seriously, if you don't run a loaded canoe through class 2+/3 rapids, you probably won't have a serious FG repair.
