Self adhesive ripstop nylon patches...??^

Post by CaileanMac » Wed Feb 22, 2006 12:41 am

Where can I find these - as my cat has put a rip in my Rab down vest last week :-(

Any ideas for webshops that stock this item?

You can get rolls of self-adhesive rip-stop spinnaker repair tape from yacht chandlers. Try typing "Spinnaker repair tape" into Google - you should find loads of places selling it.

Tent repair kits , as sold pretty much everywhere or Spinnaker repair tape so you can choose hoopier colours.

Whatever is it about to do to your kayak?

He not really a mean critter but love's exploring the kayaks in the garden and playing with towlines when they are on the clothes whirly. Luckly this was a friend's Easky ;-)

Thanks for all the suggestions. Anyone know where you get it cheaply - i.e. not at yacht chanderly prices.....

I bought my last from Taunton Leisure, they do mail order so try http://www.tauntonleisure.com. But I would have thought any decent outdoor shop would sell it.

What you need to do is put your rab on your cat and then send a picture of it to: http://www.stuffonmycat.com/

If your jacket is sky blue I'll give you a bit next time your in glasgow - I have a roll of spinnaker tape to effect temporary repairs to kites, but only in sky blue! I think the roll was about £6 in Duncans, but you can also get it in some outdoor shops, or a tent repair kit which will be the same fabric but maybe in a heavier weight.

Jim,

Thanks for offer - tracked down a roll in the local chandlery for under £4 at lunchtime today.

Thanks for everyone's info / websites.

Ollie,

He needs good sharp claws as we live out in the country and he enjoys a spot of 'mousing' when his owners are away ;-)

Hmmm - I've yet to meet a cat owned by a human, but I know plenty of humans owned by cats!
