I have a small cut in the hull of my kayak. Is it possible to repair this damage?

Yes, even though it is very hard to cut or damage our kayaks, if it does happen, then please order your repair material from one of our dealers where you bought your kayak.  Please note that not all colors maybe available. You will then need a soldering iron to “weld” the repair material into the damaged area.  Please see attached document: "Polyethylene_Repair_Guide.pdf"

High Density Polyethylene used to construct our kayaks is repairable. It may not be possible to repair kayaks that sustain major damage to the hull. Kayaks that suffer from many years of sun exposure may become brittle from UV exposure. High Density Polyethylene contains UV inhibitors, however sun exposure will eventually break down those inhibitors.
