Not so much an instructable as showing you that even severe damage on a kayak in the right hands can be repaired.  This kayak has a badly melted bow after it became loose on the roof of a bus, after cutting out the damaged hull material a large hole was left that needed patching.

A patch was made from a similar coloured old kayak hatch and this was welded in place at the bottom of the hole, a blowtorch was used to form the patch to the hull shape and it was welded in place bit by bit.

After cleaning up with a dremel tool the customer is back out on the water and very happy.
