Repairing tears in Otter skins?

5 posts in this topic

What have found was the best way to repair tears in the skin? I have an "L" shape tear in mine. About 1 1/2" each side. I bought some repair material and thought about cutting a square piece to cover it and applying Marine Goop. Thanks for your replies.

Use canvas and Tear Mender. Round off the edges on the canvas. Put a piece of canvas on both sides.

I have more patches than unpatched space on mine.

You can get tear mender at Fleet Farm.

Here is what I have found to be a good, weather proof mend. I think this is the same thing "92python" was refering to.

This came from the cabela's online catalog.



Tear Mender Item: IE-015920
Price: $9.99

Qty:







Tear Mender
This natural latex non-toxic adhesive permanently bonds to leather, cotton, acrylic and other porous materials for a strong, flexible weather-proof repair. Use the included patching section or the patching material of your choice to form a waterproof, UV-resistant bond that will never wear out, or simply apply to a puncture or tear to seal the threads. Repair is fully functional within 30 minutes.

I bought some iron patches and ironed them on from the inside and outside. They have held on good sofar. Only cost about 80 cents apiece.

I had a 6" L shape tear in my Otter and I took it to a place that works on canvas. It only cost me $10, and the person stitched it up and sealed it. He did a way better job than I would have ever done.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
