Default Duct Tape.....how have you used it to make a repair, etc...marine or otherwise.

I once used it to hold the headlight in, the fender on, and the hood down after an accident with an 90 Olds Cutlass Calais. Stayed that way for quite some time. Till I traded the car, a new fender, and the bumber cover in on a Chevy truck. Parts were in the trunk when I traded it in!! LOL!!

What's your best use of the wonderfull stuff called Duct Tape?????

This boat won't run without it.....that's why it's nick-named RWD (Running W/ DuctTape).

No but I know some women who use it as a bra.

Also had a guy in the field try to patch a Nitric Acid line with it. (didn't know thats what he wanted it for). Does not hold up well.

I used it last summer on my boat. One of my Crane coils "cracked" and the spark was jumping all over the mounting bracket. I wrapped it up in DT and made it home.

Used to crew on a SCCA Corvette, guess I used my share.

Patched to bottom of a jet ski last summer.... would have gone down otherwise.

keep a roll handy at all times.....
