Boats and rocks:
When a boat hits a rock the rocks always wins if youíre lucky you have very little damage for the times you end up with a hole in your boat and need to repair the hole to get home? It hard to have everything you need to fix youíre boat so my list should be a good place to start.
Here are some items that can be use to seal a leak.
Shoe Glue }
Goo } all slow drying
GE Silicone II }
Toilet ring wax, cheep
Tacky Tape (Camper Supply)
Gorilla Duct Tape
Because the hole is under presser when running you need to place a cover over it. Very thin Alum like pop cans or Alum roofing will work and can be cut with a scissors.
You may need some special tools like a;
Battery power drill and bits.
Pop rivet and tools
Self tapping screw or sheet metal screws.
Putting the shield on the outside would be the best, if for some reason you canít do what you can. Youíre not going any where until you stop the boat from leaking or slow it down so your bilge pumps can keep up. Run the boat on shore, cut trees to make a crib, and a pry bar to lift the boat, or dig a trench under the boat or work under water, do what ever you need to get home.
Where I run the rocks are not sharp so my biggest problem would be ripping out the transom.
I also carry a hi-lift jack and a shovel; they have save my butt more than once mainly getting unstuck.
