Stephen - Did you fit wear patches to fix this problem in the end...

Post some pics of your handywork - I assume youve got the boat back in the water now...

I have no problem getting some, I'll just have to wait for a while. True of most things in this part of the world, a bad place to be in a hurry to get anything!
C'mon Stephen, where's the 'Ray Mears' in you? He'd have the whole thing glued back togther with seal jiz by now! Altough tossing off a bull seal would be a bit tricky.

Haven't got them yet, I did a temporary repair with small patches just to cover the holes (I already had a small roll of hypalon that came with the boat).

Humber are sending me some repair materials FOC but I don't have them yet, and even when I do it'll be a couple of months before any glue arrives (that is of course if Polymarine answer the email I sent...).

Not really a problem as it is heading into winter here so I won't be using it much, as for the repair I don't have anywhere big enough to fit the boat inside and so I will probably leave the big job until the weather warms up again, I don't think trying to do it outside in 4/5 deg C would be a good idea, better to wait until ambient temps reach double figures again I think.

I have had the boat back in the water a couple of times and no problems with the temporary repair, only problem I had was that a several-year-old patch applied by a previous owner started to peel off when I was out last weekend (appeared to not have sanded the patch, only the tube!) but I fixed that on Monday and hope to be afloat again for a while on the weekend if the weather is reasonable wait and see what goes wrong next

I knew of a bull seal tossed himself onto a sea kayak ??

To explore caves in a sea kayak its best to go in backwards .
The kayaker fellow did just this and surprised a sleeping bull seal high on a ledge , who in surprise "tossed" himself off the ledge onto the rear deck of the sea kayak which broke in half just behind the rear bulkhead. The sea kayak emerged from the cave as if was trying to get on the plane .
