  Duct Tape and epoxy putty
  Posted by: TommyC1 on Sep-22-13 1:10 PM (EST)

I carry good Duct Tape(3M 3939)and a tube of epoxy putty.
The duct tape won't stick to wet surfaces. But once the hull was dry I've made temporary repairs that lasted through several days of class III rock pounding (Dead River ME).
Never yet had to use the putty but it's small in my pack so I keep bringing it.

On our Allagash trip last week Wickerbut brought a GFlex repair kit. We had no need for the cloth but did use the epoxy to re-glue a kneepad that came loose.
