To repair the bottom of a Dura Eclipse use 5 minute epoxy. If you can find White 5 minute epoxy that is the best to blend in with the bottom color. Here is my recommendation tape off the area to minimize the repair. Rough up the damaged skin with 120 grit sand paper. Fill the hole with 5 minute epoxy then cover the repair with wax paper and tape it down the the board. Pull the wax paper after 5-10 minutes and you are back on the water. I hope this helps!

Thank you - but will this type of epoxy hold onto the plastic (long term) on the bottom of the dura? Im not sure what type of plastic it is, but may be HDPE?
