DIY Kayak Repair – Plastic Welding


In this video I show you the basics of plastic welding some scratches on a kayak. This technique can also be used on cracks as I have fixed a crack about two inches long and separated by about a 1/4 inch. I advise you to practice before you actually start on your kayak.

Below are links to the items I used in this video.

Make sure you know what material your kayak is made of before you purchase rods for welding. You can usually find that information online or you can contact the company that makes your kayak.

If you have any questions feel free to ask away.
