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.

A lot of the pedal boats now are made of plastic, I found the best thing to repair them is JB Weld, a 2 part glue that can be found in any hardware store. When mixed it almost like a putty, so it will cover up small holes. I used the one for metal but I think they have one designed for plastic. Anyways it worked great to patch up 2 holes I had on my boat. It's been over a year and stil holding.

The basket is cracked


On the bottom of the 'TOP PART WITH THE MOTOR AND BLADES" is a SAFETY SWITCH that must fit onto a small piece on the inside of the basket for the unit to run. If the basket is cracked and the small plastic piece does not match up the machine will not start.

Your options are:
1) Try to repair the basket to get the switch to line up
2) Go to the manufacture's web site to purchase a replacement basket.
3) Trash it all and buy a new unit.

Deep Hull gouge on bottom of plastic kayak


Some people talk about getting very careful with a small torch and sticks of poly and melting them into holes like that, but I have not done that kind of repair. Whatever you do, if anything, be sure not to damage the hull - which is still OK - and to smooth out any edges when you are finished.

Water in hull of bass tender pro


Find the leak and patch it. Use a good marine epoxy system with a sheet or two of fiberglass cloth laid-across the crack. Be sure to sandpaper the area thoroughly with rough paper. If you can't find a leak or crack, fill the hull with water and inspect for leak. Repair after.

Jackson kayak hull repair


Crosslink = good luck
Linear plastic is simple: cut a sliver from your cockpit and try to weld it back with a heat gun, soldering iron or old skiwax iron, do not use open flame as this will produce soot.

There are many sources of linear plastic, use the above system to ensure compatibility of plastics.
When welding try to melt the two plastics together, I normally spin the plastic "welding rod" thereby mixing old and new material into a good composite of both.

Video is my son's Rockstar, we welded a bow protector because Jackson linear plastics cannot compare to any other boats I have paddled in thirty years. Jackson's paddle well and my son loves his boat, but as his technician it sucks.


Google "keelguard" this product may help someone.

BTW an old iron works great on linears to smooth out cuts or nicks. Boiling hot water will help pop dents out!

Repair any cracks or damage to the hull with fiberglass repair kits, available at most hardware stores. Use an overlay prior to the fiberglass if the area is bigger than a quarter so you don't develop a soft spot.

Scanoe, Ram-X, Split in hull near gunwhales- Repair, How?


I found a Scanoe like this on craigslist that was being given away because of several splits ins the hull. I was ready to buy that patch kit on line when I stumbled on a solution that worked great! I was in Home Depot looking in their pond department and saw some self adhesive patches for poly ponds. I bought on for less than $7.00 and gave it a try. I sanded the inside of the hull around the split. cleaned it well and applied the patch. It worked like a charm!
