As some of you know, my grown son recently bought a new-to-him used fiberglass sailboat, complete with a cabin that sleeps 4-6. <img src=http://home.insightbb.com/~cbwatts/SM_boat.gif/>
It's been a real bonding experience for me, because it's allowed my son and I to discuss all things fiberglass.
So, for his birthday, I got him, what I feel, is the perfect birthday present: a 2 oz bottle of Capt. Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure.
I no longer leave home without a bottle ... so now since my son has a bottle, he can safely sail the seven seas.
Now, before anybody jumps me, aside from that one incident involving a really mean tree and a few spider web cracks, I've never had a serious problem or leak with any of our three fiberglass trailers.
But, I like to travel prepared. And that's why my son and I both travel with a bottle of Capt. Morgan ... err, Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure.
Here's the description:
Finding and Fixing Cracks and Leaks Couldn't be Easier
This low-viscosity copolymer sealant detects, seals and bonds hairline cracks in every type of boat-building material. Capt. Tolley's formula is different from other sealants because it finds it's way inside cracks by capillary action and sets to a clear, flexible and permanent seal. Supplied in 2 oz. plastic squeeze bottle.
Finds and fixes leaks without hassles
Seals hairline cracks
No dismantling required
Saves time and effort
Cheapest place I've found it online is at http://www.boatus-store.com/
You might be able to find it at your local Bubbas Boat Store.
Does it work? I've heard it does, but to be honest, have no experience with it. But, the stuff sounds like something that should be in every fiberglass RVer's bag of tricks.
Besides, it will make a perfect gift for that special someone in your life!
