    Depends on the size of the hole and the type of damage.

    If you are in anchorage you should hit Plas-chem in ship creek and get WEST system epoxy as well as your cloth material.

    I repair all types of marine hulls, fiberglass, Epoxy, Wood. Also repair outboards. I can build boats also, but the cost is prohibitive for resale.

    Ok well this is my advice i work at Plaschem supply and there is no need for you to buy stuff out of state. Plaschem moved about a year ago from the ship creek area and moved to Wasilla at 720 N. Shoreline Dr. If you do not want to drive to wasilla there is Fiberlay off of international. Before you buy epoxy though, you will want to make sure your boat was made out of epoxy. If your boat is made out of polyester resin then stick with polyester resin. It is not hard to fix your own boat.
