The best material for a boat is Fiberglass. However if you prefer Plastic you may want ABS which is harder and lighter than the regular plastic. Aluminum is also a good material for boats. Its downside is that it lacks the foam and it conducts electricity.

How can I maintain my pedal boat?

The best way to keep your pedal boat is to move your boat into a garage after you use it. You can also keep it on the shore but make sure it is covered. Remember that if you have a plastic boat, water can get in between the hull and the deck. You should make sure that you get the water out before it creates mold.

I have a small crack in the top of my paddle boat that takes on water when the kids are playing or when the wind kicks up and waves roll over the top. Can I make a fiberglass repair or is there another...

I used ABS, PVC combination plumbers glue, the kind they use to put plastic waste pipe together, to patch up 2 small holes in my plastic pelican boat. It seems to melt on, so far so good

Repair of small crack/cut in the hull bottom...3 " long..1/64" or less wide...

It depends on the material of the hull. If it is Fiberglass then buy a small auto or boat repair fibreglass kit and follow instructions in the kit.
. If it is one of the engineering thermoplastics like High density Polyethylene ABS or Polypropylene I would try and find somone who can weld it with the appropriate material. This would be done by carefully shaping the plastic away from the crack to form a "V" shaped recess and then filling the gap with the appropriate filler rod usually using a hot air blower designed for the job.
