These are all-purpose patch kits that evey
boater or camper should have on any outing. They feature
thick, peel-and-stickTeflon patch material with a super
adhesive that will work on virtually any surface. This stuff
will work where duct tape won't, is UV resistant, and there
is no waiting for glue to dry or cure. Patch air mattresses,
inflatable boats, kayaks, sea boots, foul weather gear,
fishing waders, dry bags, even small holes in plywood or
Your choice of kits:
There are two kits available - choose the
one you think most useful for your needs: also ask about

Don Kirchberger "discovered" the
properties of this space-age material almost by accident.
Now he makes these kits for boaters everywhere. Here is
"I had just arrived in Montana
for my annual trout-fishing trip and was unpacking my pontoon
boat so I could start fishing the Missouri River by early
afternoon. During the set-up I noticed there was a leak
in one of the pontoons, which had most probably been caused
while transporting the boat from home. I located the patch
kit that had been supplied with the boat. The directions
stated the patch would take 12 hours to cure. Well, I was
only going to be in Montana for 5 days; consequently, I
was not a happy fisherman! I patched the pontoon and waited
not too happily for the patch to cure. During the interim,
I remembered my friend telling me about a new adhesive that
cured quickly. I called him and he quickly FedExed me two
8x10 sheets overnight."
"The next morning I discovered that I had two
additional holes. I did not have another 12 hours to give
this process! This time I used the Teflon material to
make the repair and within the hour, I was ready to go.
I fished all week with no problems. Now, I know this sounds
like a 'fish story,' but it actually happened that way!"
"Now after 30 years of engineering experience,
I knew there must be a better way to deal th these problems,
so I designed a repair kit to help fisherman, like me,
who wants a quick repair for annoying incnveniences."
Instructions for Patch-N-Go Repairs*
1. Patch should be applied at temperatures
above 40 F.
2. It is critical that the surface
has been cleaned of any surface contaminants such as
dirt, water, or oil.
3. Remove surface contaminants with
the Alcohol Swab that has been provided in the Patch-N-Go
Kit. Allow the alcohol to evaporate.
4. It is not necessary to roughen or
use a primer before placing patch on the area in need.
- 3. Apply the patch slowly, removing the backing while
smoothing the patch.
- 4. Minimize trapped air under the patch by working the
patch from the center outward toward the edges.
- 5. Once the patch has been applied, vigorously rub the
patch with the plastic squeegee to enhance the
bonding. Never peel back the patch from the material to
determine if it is adhering to surface of item being repaired;
this can destroy the bond.
- 6. The patch will display excellent initial bonding
within minutes of application, and the item will be ready
for use. Further bonding will take place as the adhesive
