Patching an Otter Canvas

8 posts in this topic

I already bought the patch kit from Otter but I'd like to know if there are any special techniques involved with patching the canvas. Thanks for any input.

Use fishing line and a needle to attach it. The fabric glue they give you doesn't work at all

Cut circles not squares. The corners on squares catch and peel. The best thing is to patch on both sides with the adhesive they give you. sewing of course would hold best but there are plenty of great canvas glues out there you can use.

I used a product, I think it was called Tare Mender, and had good results with it.

I belong to a fishing club and one of the members uses Shoe Goo for canvas repairs and says it works great. I am going to try it on my Otter this spring.

Good tip. I've been having some issues with the patches I put on doing that (catching and peeling). When it's time to replace them I'll try the circle trick.

This is what I used to repair my fish house. Bought it from Canvas Craft but I have seen it at hardware stores. Works great and sets up fast.

Thank you all for the good tips. Sorry thing is I still have the Otter in the bed of my truck. I just hate to give up but all of the lakes around me are wide open. Guess it's time to dig out the fishing boat......

    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
    • So you prefer the status quo bobby? Wars in the middle east to to the tune of Billions or Trillions, corrupt politicians everywhere, corporations buying laws, favors and tax perks that pocket them money. Or do you prefer to save up for another gov bailout and just let it all slide because there is nothing we can do.
