  canoe repair

Duct tape is the standard. I have repaired another person's fiberglass canoe that was badly damaged. We used rocks to pound out the dents and cracks and it worked. I punched two holes in a wooden drift boat on the Carson River and got home with duct tape.

Repairs are tough to make in the field with fiberglass and epoxy. You need grinders, scissors, cloth, mixing containers, etc. Better to repair at home. Maybe on a really long trip I would bring cloth and epoxy.
