One tip that I read elsewhere on the Gorilla tape. I haven't done it yet, but plan on it for this season.
First put a brightly colored Gorilla tape down, then a second layer of another color on top. When the top layer wears through you will notice the brightly colored tape below - BEFORE it starts to wear on the hull you can replace the outer layer of tape.
Just a thought to consider.
Many go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not the fish that they are after. Henry David Thoreau
