Duct tape plug.

I am in no way associated with 3M ,but I picked up some black duct tape made by them about 3 months ago. This stuff is extraordinary. I patched a (manufactured) hole in the Seda with it.Paddled,dragged the boat on sand, ran it over Hully rollers. Finally replaced it because it was getting ratty.

Got a 3M number from the core?
I’m not normally a brand-loyal type, but when it comes to self-adhesive films and tapes, I’m a big fan of 3M products.

Core says “Scotch TOUGH duct tape”.
“Extreme Hold”. Got it at HD; I have used it now to wrap cable, prevent a leak,as masking to keep epoxy off the hull when doing epoxy repairs. I’m putting a roll in my emergency kit.

Ah, sounds like this one:

Looks like they have a few different versions.

that is it.

Gorilla Tape crushes Duct

My choice for ""outdoor crisis"" is Gorilla Tape

a.) twice as thick
b.) lot more rubber based adhesive
c.) lasts longer for moisture conditions
d.) will stick to rough surfaces better


I switched to that tape
The standard stuff that I had used to wrap foam tubes around risers and crossbars on the trailer quickly deteriorated. I rewrapped with the Tough dark gray tape, and it’s still holding up well after almost 5 months.
