Emergency puncture procedure

So you're out on the water and you, say, hit an object or catch it with a pair of scissors or knife, and spring a puncture.
Is it just a matter of RLF or is it possible to make a temporary repair. What do you take?

Did exactly that (snagging the corner of a pontoon) some years ago; borrowed one of the above from someone who happened to have one then and there to get me going again; have kept one in my grab bag ever since. Takes 2 mins to install and then you're good to go again.

Yep ditto. Had a clamseal in the emergency bag since we started sibbing.

Jeff has some emergency waterproof tape he rates and I've always meant to get a roll.

If the puncture happens to be round can use rubber cone inserts, comes in different sizes to fit different hole diams. Check Zodiac for them...

Happy Boating
