  fiberglass repair
  Posted by: ppine on Sep-11-13 2:06 PM (EST)

We were trying to get home. The boat that was damaged was an old, not very good boat to begin with. The fiberglass was brittle. After the boat swamped in some big rapids it smacked some big rocks. The damage was extensive. The only way to get the contours of the boat lined up was to persuade them with a rock. Otherwise it would not have been impossible to use duct tape to fill an opening of around 8-10 inches.

My friend was surprised that we got the boat home at all. I am glad that you think it was so funny.
