The Gator Patch Fiberglass Reinforced Repair Patch is an excellent way to do a small field repair to your kayak, and get you out of a bind. It works in a few steps
Step 1 - Clean the surface around the crack with sand paper to ensure that it is even and smooth.
Step 2 - Peel the patch and stick it over the cracked surface. Make sure that the patch extends at least one inch beyond the crack in all directions, and there are no bubbles.
Step 3 - Peel the top cover of the patch, and allow the surface to be exposed to sunlight for about an hour to cure in the UV light.
Step 4 (optional) - Sand down the patch so that it is even with the rest of the kayak surface.
The video below from Kayak Angler Magazine gives a good walk through on how to apply the patch.
