Hi - another new dodger construction disaster - punching hole for snap with inadvertant piece of sunbrella fabric doubled up - so now have a couple of tiny holes.  What I'd like to do is glue small patches on inside of dodger and then fill (with warp aligned) the tiny holes with hole remnants.   Saw your tender mender in the catalog - but would silicone work?  Or something I can pick up in small amounts locally (eg superglue)?  I hate to wait a few days and want to repair asap.  Can't stitch a patch on without it showing and would have to do on both port/stbd side to make it symmetric and 'feature it'.  Thoughts?
PS - how about something like Permatex, or other clear vinyl repair (from auto parts) adhesives?

Hi Iris,
I would order and wait on the Tear Mender Glue. The other stuff you would need to test and we have not here at Sailrite. Maybe someone else had found something that works. I hope we get some other feedback.
Thanks, Matt
