LAGOON 2 BOTTOM REPAIR OR NOT

Post by matuka » Tue Jul 05, 2011 1:56 pm

I took my Lagoon 2 on maiden voyage on Lake Tahoe last weekend. When I flipped it over to dry I noticed a small 1/2" long gash on bottom. The gash appears to have only gone through surface layer of material and not gone completely through or created a hole in floor of kayak. Should I patch this or leave it alone. If I need to patch, do I patch from outside or inside of boat?

1. use a patch on the outside of your kayak. Let the patch cure overnight. Next, go around the edges of the patch with glue. Let cure 6 hrs.

2. The next day, lay a small line of glue on the cut from the inside. Let cure over night and your good to go. This will ensure your patch is permanent.
