How to Repair Boats?

Answer

There are several ways to repair different types of boats i.e. the aluminium boat where you first place the boat in the water and mark with a marker where the water is leaking into the boat then put the boat up on supports and slowly fill the boat with water to determine the location of the leak(s) if the previous method didn't work again patch the leak from the outside whenever possible so the pressure of the water actually works with the patch rather than against it and clean the area where the patch is to be applied thoroughly finally apply 3M 5200 sealant to the area to be patched much like you would apply caulking, make sure that you follow any instructions that come with this sealant or any other sealant that you may choose to try.
