When's the last time you read the directions on a can of barge? It says "Use at room temperature." What if room temperature is below freezing? One thing I know about river guides, they're innovative. First we did what we always do, which was ignore the directions and just put the stuff on, which of course didn't work - we couldn't get the brush into the glue. So we put the glue into a double boiler and put a gas lantern up next to the bottle of Southern Comfort that was stuck in the hole so the water would drain out. When everything was warmed up, we drank the Southern Comfort and hoped the patch would hold. We didn't have a chance to think about what our families and friends were doing that evening until we got the tube to hold air.
