Re: Which emergency use fibreglass matting should I have?

I carry a couple of small Blue Tarps that can be quickly rigged as a hull diaper should the hull be breached. After stopping the water coming in with them I would try to come up with a more permanent solution after the initial emergency has been taken care of. That might include some plywood and fiberglass matting and epoxy and other sealants. BTW these tarps are sometimes available for free at Harbor Freight stores with other purchases.
