fixing the fish house canvas


Captain Ken

Question

Bought a nice used Frabill fish house the other day. Not a tear in it. Guy smoked and there was some crud on the floor. Decided to air it out. Set it up in drive way, cleaned it and left it stand where I thought it would be safe from wind. Nice strong wind came along, blew it across the street. Now, there are some nice rub holes along the one side where the material goes over the frame. Biggest is about 3 inches. Couple smaller ones too.

How best to fix it? Some aren't like simple tears, so can't just sew it. Needs a little material added in....can take to canvas guy, but probably $$$.
Friend suggested gluing piece of new material around areas, but what kind of glue??

Ideas?

Thanks!

Ken

All you need is Tear mender. Canvas, and a pair of scissors.

Tear mender is sold at Mills Fleet Farm and some canvas shops.

Bring the house inside to get it to room temperature. Cut the canvas patches with rounded edges. Patch on both sides if neccessary and follow the directions on the bottle of Tear Mender.

I used iron on patches from Walmart on both the inside and outside of hole, has held up great so far.

Had the mice do a little ventilation on mine. Had to buy a new zipper and used old jeans for hole patching.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
