    What the ...? I hit submit and the site disappears into the twilight zone. I finally get it back up and see my post went up three times!?

      I like system three epoxies and adhesives. They make a formulation for almost every application. high quality products.

        I used the sanding drum tool on my Dremel to knock the glaze off the dried epoxy. Worked real slick. The patched spots are now very dull and gray so I may not need to paint over them after all.

        The new decoys utilized a single black plastic stake with a huge square nub that stuck through a hole in the top of the deek. Supposed to provide movement, for all that's worth (which is absolutely nothing - honkers usually spook if there's a mojo going in the spread). I tossed those crappy stakes and made some new T-type wooden stakes that are spring loaded. Used doweling for stakes with cross pieces cut from strips of pine door catch molding. Each end (except the point pushed in the ground) is capped off with a painted paneling nail which slides through a pre-drilled hole in the decoy. Anyway, I had to plug the big square holes in the top of the decoys. Used this bumper epoxy backed with fiberglass fabric and it worked like a charm!
