So there were like a billion ‘cure’ jokes I could have put here but I decided on the one above. You are welcome.

Long and short of it, temperatures have plummeted and it’s too cold for the marine-tex to fully cure. Which means I have a huge damn hole in my roof still and it’s below freezing.

I came up with an idea – why not put something over the TOP of the hole, and then the heat from the cabin would gather over the hole and the marine-tex, hopefully giving it enough heat to cure!

I tried a bowl lined with tinfoil, but it was just too small, so then I used…. a frying pan.


Yes, I have a frying pan duct-taped to the top of my boat. I have no idea what the neighbours think.
