Repairing tears in Otter skins?


Big Sky

Question

What have found was the best way to repair tears in the skin? I have an "L" shape tear in mine. About 1 1/2" each side. I bought some repair material and thought about cutting a square piece to cover it and applying Marine Goop. Thanks for your replies.

Use canvas and Tear Mender. Round off the edges on the canvas. Put a piece of canvas on both sides.

I have more patches than unpatched space on mine.

You can get tear mender at Fleet Farm.

Here is what I have found to be a good, weather proof mend. I think this is the same thing "92python" was refering to.

This came from the cabela's online catalog.



Tear Mender Item: IE-015920
Price: $9.99

Qty:







Tear Mender
This natural latex non-toxic adhesive permanently bonds to leather, cotton, acrylic and other porous materials for a strong, flexible weather-proof repair. Use the included patching section or the patching material of your choice to form a waterproof, UV-resistant bond that will never wear out, or simply apply to a puncture or tear to seal the threads. Repair is fully functional within 30 minutes.

I bought some iron patches and ironed them on from the inside and outside. They have held on good sofar. Only cost about 80 cents apiece.

I had a 6" L shape tear in my Otter and I took it to a place that works on canvas. It only cost me $10, and the person stitched it up and sealed it. He did a way better job than I would have ever done.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
