    Posted: 04 October 2016 at 3:46pm
We are storing the boat under one of those RV enclosures this year - the kind with the metal tubing frame with a reinforced vinyl skin.  Our bowsprit is just a little too long for the enclosure and will touch the end.  In addition to padding the bowsprit, I wanted to put an abrasion patch on the vinyl material, and thought SurLast (of which I have many scraps) would be a good choice.  The question is:  Can I glue it to the vinyl fabric, or do I have to sew it?  I don't want to weaken the vinyl with needle holes if possible.  If gluing is an option, any recommendations for adhesive?
Thanks!

Hi Sue,

The best approach is to sew it. Sorry for the delay in answering. My team and I just got back from the Annapolis Boat Show.

Best Regards,

Thanks Matt - hope the boat show was a success!  Someday I'll make it there.

Anyway, I went ahead and glued it with 3M 77 spray adhesive.  Seems to hold okay... will let you know in spring!  I figured if it falls off, I could sew it later.
