I agree plastic is difficult to repair, pretty well known fact but I've had some success with a few different products. Perhaps the most surprising was a cracked built-in welded outlet fitting (plastic) at the bottom of a water tank. When I got the call to assess, the only thing I had on me to save the weekend was 5200 and figured it was a temporary measure until I can schedule tank removal and replacement. That was about 6 years ago. I still service this vessel regularly so I check it when I remember and am surprised it has held up this long with no leaks. Considering a hose is hooked up to the cracked piece and the crack encounters some stress from vibration, I'd say it's done very well for what was meant to be a temporary fix. Surprised, but I'll take it, and the owner is good with that too 'cause we don't have to tear the boat apart yet to remove the tank.
