Duct tape II
Posted by Gober on Jul 26, 2005
We were paddling with about 12 canoe's this spring, 11 were plastic 1 was an old aluminum one. We put 2, 18 year old guys in the old aluminum boat. They wanted to take some rapids in it... some how they got sideways it. The rock that brought them to a halt and rolled all their crap out of the boat also tore a 12 inch rip in the metal. After we gathered most of their belongings, we took that boat beat the metal fairly straight with rocks and duct taped her up. She floated the rest of the weekend with minimal bailing. We were about 8 miles into a 21 mile paddle in the middle of no where... ALWAYS TAKE THE TAPE.
