    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water

    Preparing the kit for a short holiday dip tomorrow at Stoney and I find this little hole in the drysuit.



    Although super frustrating that I've lost the excuse to get away from the in-laws for a day, at least I didn't drive all the way there and have to watch from the sidelines.

    Tear-Aid type A, it should be fine for at least one dive.

    Here in the US we have something called "Gorilla Tape". Its kinda like Duct Tape that is much stickier and tougher. Put a properly sized piece on either side and heat it up "slightly" with a hair dryer. The heat will help soften the glue and get it to stick.

    It should do the trick!!!

    Dive Safe!
