    Huh! Seeing is believing, I guess....amazing that you can just shove it in a big hole with a lot of water pressure and it will stop a big leak...hard to believe it would bond under water pressure...if it works as stated, you are right, Steve, we all should have it!

    So Steve, are you going to stock and distribute this stuff? It sounds like a must-have for Alaskan boaters.

    Looks very much like the toilet ring wax that I keep in my boat. Works the same way and is even stronger when you add hair or shredded rope or string, even grass.

    I agree it looks like it would work well.

    Stuff looks pretty impressive. I wouldn't use it to continue on a trip but I bet it will get you back to the dock for repairs. Curious what its made of, wax or hydrocarbons. I like the toilet ring idea too Steve. I have always carried a couple tubes of the metal pudy that you knead in case I had a issue on the water but thank goodness haven't had to use it yet.

    Just ordered some of the stuff. Would feel pretty lazy if I needed it this summer but didn't get around to getting some.

    I have something similar already in my parts cabinet, but haven't looked at it in years, some kind of stick-shaped putty stick for an emergency fix. This July, when the snow has melted enough to get to my boat, I'll get in it and look at it.

    Thanks Steve I just bought some.Got some for my boats and for my dads boats.
    Even if it is toilet wax if it works good like it does in the video it might just save the day sometime for me or someone I come across.
    And as was stated very reasonable shipping to Alaska.
