Canoe Repairs Question

Post By: johnski      Posted: 11/2/2022 12:15:53 PM     Points: 4855    
My wife and I fished from the canoe recently and caught some nice rainbows. However, a little bit of leakage came in through the front of the canoe. Does anyone have any best advice to seal the rivets and seams and what product works the best. It is an aluminum canoe. Thanks...

Flex seal . . . .comes in tape,spray can and brush on . . .Home Depot carry's it and how you prep the area to apply it to will really help. Sand or run a wire wheel over the area to be sealed to give the sealer the best chance possible.
There is also Gorilla Glues sealer . . . .

B.T.W. . . .my swamp cooler was starting to leak and I used 2 cans of Flex Seal spray on it to do a reseal on it.Worked out great! No more leaks and we just shut the cooler down for the winter. The pan that holds the water looks great and should last many more years.

Thanks for the tip. That sounds like a fairly easy method. I'll look into it.

3M 5200 Marine Sealant. Most good marine stores have it.
