Repairing Triple Tough: Cracks and Gouges

Due to the triple layer construction, it is very very rare that a Triple Tough hull will crack all the way through. Usually the crack will be isolated to the inner or outer skin and in both cases, the best remedy is the poly drip method (See POLYETHYLENE REPAIR: CRACKS AND FRACTURES). 

It is important to make sure there is no moisture trapped within the foam core of the hull before you repair it. It is a good idea to take a hair-dryer and warm the area around the fracture to evacuate any residual moisture.  Any moisture you trap inside the core can cause damage as it contracts and expands with temperature changes.  It is far better to eliminate the potential all together.
