I am looking for some ideas on how to re-enforce at least the front hull of a plastic (polyethylene I think) canoe I purchased.
It seems to handle impacts well, and bouces right back, but its getting some fairly deep gouges and scrapes already.
I know they make some kits for this, but all they are, are some epoxy and a bit of material, and they are $50+ kits !
I am just looking for alternative ideas.
Doesnt have to be real pretty, just something to give the front hull a bit more toughness, and thickness.
I was thinking of using some PVC glue, or some 5 minute epoxy, which I will be testing tonight, just to see if it sticks well.
But I am not sure what to use as a material.
Are there any epoxies that are good with plastics, that arent real expensive, and come in larger cans?
What about "gaffer" ? tape, would it stand up to any of this?
Thanks for the ideas guys,
