There is a company that makes a repair patch/material for that stuff. Stronger than original, IIRC. Got a sample at the SHOT show a couple years ago. I'll see if I can find the package.


Ah, I remember what G. Gordon Liddy said (I might be paraphrasing, a bit):

"When I was an FBI agent we went everywhere and did anything in our three-piece suits, wing-tip shoes, and snap-brim fedoras. We also generally carried a revolver."


saw this advert, thought you might be interested:


EDITOR'S NOTE: I have one of those, Will. Mine is for a 5-ton, so it's two feet too long, but works if lashed down properly. The problem with those vinyl ones is that the seams weren't either sewed or riveted, only glued, and they open up easily. Mine opened up about 3 feet, right along the top seam. The rubber boat place here said they could fix it, but it would cost over half of what it is to have a new oiled canvas one made from scratch out in MN (but shipping that heavy item cost several hundred bucks).
