3M's 5200 Boat Hull Sealant Used To Seal Drain Lines
Shawn Nelson, Kotzebue, Alaska: "I live 30 miles above the Arctic Circle and had frozen drain lines in the house, causing some of them to crack. As I'm located in a remote area with limited resources, I couldn't just drive into town for parts. I solved the problem by using 3M's 5200 boat hull sealant to seal the drain lines, and to this day I've had no more problems with them.
  "I have extra narrow feet so it's hard to find foot gear that fits correctly. That's why I was saddened when my good-fitting Lacross Pack boots started developing cracks. I tried using tire patches, wader repair kits, and Zodiak boat repair kits with no luck. I was about to throw away the boots, which are no longer on the market, when I figured I'd try using the same 3M 5200 boat hull sealant as a last resort. It worked great. Since then I've also used this product to fix a fuel fitting and to seal a rusty gas tank. This stuff remains flexible when cured and resists gas and oil with a rubber-like constancy."
