    After blowing another hole in my lake float tube I decided to get a canoe. My oldest boy is about old enough to start fishing any way so I needed something to haul us both around a lake. Any way, I picked up an el-cheapo Pelican 15 1/2 footer and have a question about the ramxcel hull. I want to put some grip tape for footing on the floor. It is pretty slick when dry, I imagine it's probably a deathtrap when wet. Has anyone had any success getting any particular epoxy to adhere to that surface?

    Epoxy will adhere to damn near anything. The best way to be sure it to take some coarse 60 grit paper and rough up and clean the surface you plan to adhere to.
