LOL... I told ya so... Damn... the glue just isn't as sticky as it used to be... actually, I think it is more a matter of the mylar being harder to stick to than anything else. Stitching it up properly always makes a glued-on patch much stronger.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
