  epoxy putty
  Posted by: plaidpaddler on Jun-27-13 9:17 PM (EST)

I've taken along a tube of epoxy putty for years and have used it several times, sometimes for other camping gear and not the canoe. The old Spirit has several epoxy putty blobs on the keel line where the gelcoat and resin have been knocked off the Kevlar cloth crashing into rocks unseen by the bow paddler. Its a tube no larger than a toothpaste tube and you just break off what you need and knead it till the color is uniform thru the blob. It sticks very well and has fixed tool handles, filling in rodent bites.
We've patched holes in aluminum canoes with it and repaired wooden canoe paddles.
