Patch Kit
One of the very few adhesives that will adhere to HDPE boats (High Density Polyethylene) and stay stuck.

Self-leveling glue that dries clear and remains flexible. Completely waterproof, ideal for below water line repairs. UV resitant to resist yellowing, cracking and embrittlement, stays pliable even in cold temperatures. Can be painted over so that repairs are less noticeable. Comes with fiberglass reinforcing matt.
Does NOT provide protection against abrasion.

Patch Kit   $ 25.00

We have discovered a repair kit that will adhere to HDPE boats (High Density Polyethylene).
These high performance patches are rain and snow resistant, vibration resistant,
and can withstand hot or cold enviroments. The additional material provides reinforcement to wear sufaces. These patches are made with a "shape memory" compsite that enables them to be warmed and then molded to various shapes and unusual angles. When cooled, they keep the new shape and offer rigid support. Their backing is a high performance and weather-resistant adhesive that holds tight and lasts. They allow different materials and sufaces to be repaired together.
Recommended heating methods include a heat gun, an MRE heater, a heating bag, or an oven.

You need to upgrade your Flash Player.

We started with a Pelican Energy that Fedex Freight had run a forklift thru.

(We're not sure how they did it, but they mananged)
It was a large hole,
big enough to insert your hand into.
The two sides of the hole were about 1" apart.
In order to flush up the sides of the hole, we inserted a screw into the indented side and gently heated the platic while pulling on the screw.
Now that the sides of the hole are flush, we can apply the patch.

It may be necessary to scuff the area with sandpaper first.
Be sure to clean the area as well. You can wipe it with an alcohol swab or acetone.
We test fit a strip to be sure it would cover and to know where to cut it to length. We cut it with a pair a scissors without much difficulty.
Gently heat the patch.
Peel off the backing and apply while still warm. You will want to wear gloves for this step.
The very top edge has such a tight contour that it was necessary to reheat the patch to get a perfect fit.
The complete process from start to finished patch was less than 15 minutes. That inludes the time for us to take pictures as well.
It may not be the original factory look, but it held up to a group of kids playing on the boat all weekend.

Update: It has been over 4 years since we installed this patch and the patch is still going without a problem.
