Useful new product

Have just tried the new tape called Gorrila tape. This is like super duper duct tape and has multiple uses, including fixturing and temp repairs to tubes. It sticks like you know what to a blanket even to concrete. I used it to hold re-glued rub strake in place while glue set up. Only comes in black. When removed the glue residue can be removed with toluene. I would say it is about 10 times better than the best quality duct tape. in the UK or from Ace Hardware in the USA. Five bucks for a 12 yard roll at Ace.

Running around like a head with it's chicken cut off.

Hmmmph. I paid $10 at OSH (but I don't know how big the roll was.) Seems like good stuff, but of course, as soon as I got it home, all tape-needing jobs disappeared.

I thought we'd pay about 12 for a 5 yard roll!

But we actually pay 7:32 for 35 yards


I cant believe it - I'd better buy some!
New boat is here, very happy!

That's some claim ...

Double thick aggressive adhesive, laid on extra thick (17mm), fills in gaps for a stickier grip

so the glue is 3/4 inch thick? or have I missed something (as usual)
