Does anyone do it or do you know anyone that does this? I need to get two nasty holes fixed in my boat.

Like Delw said, it' really depends on the materail. It's probably polypro in which case welding is a good way to go. You can try Philip's Plastics off of 40th St and Roeser (sp?). They will fix it with a professional grade version of what jkole posted.

It it's PVC or ABS is can be glued and reinforced with fiberglass cloth....really need to know the material.

Actually, polyethylene is what I meant to say in my post above, not polypro. Practically nothing will stick to that stuff.

What type of plastic, there are many fix's for this from commercial plastic supply house's in the valley.

Plastic welding is usually called ultrasonic welding, very few people have the equipment. its pretty cool how it fuses plastic together.

Del - I need welding done on RAMX. The boat has two nasty holes on the stern, my idea of jb weld and fiber glass is not going to cut it. Figured welding a couple of patches on the back is what I need.

Hey dude I do some of this stuff at work, I could fix it for you but I need to know what type of plastic...if its polyethylene I can do it....any other type like was already said a fiberglass patch,filler or glue works well.....

I just ****ed up my buddys Saturn(I fixed it though) so Im not the best at it:biggrin:
Franklyn, the Saturn is ABS, no?

RAMX

Is it a coleman? Duct-Tape will get you by better than you think in a pinch, until you can fix it properly. Coleman used to sell patch kits that you welded holes with in the RAMX, but it's tough to find them anymore.

Pelican - but it's RAMX. I'll have to look for one of those patch kits, these holes are pretty bad though.... 1-2" long by 1/4" wide.
