    How is duct tape like The Force?

    Duct tape is for ducts. But if you can't get over the urge to tape something try electrician's tape then fiberglass strand tape and then more electrician's tape.
    The E tape is easy to take off, (dosn't leave a goey mess) covers the FG tape protecting it from UV ect and the FG tape gives the whole thing great strength.

    - it was originally developed for the US army.

    This is odd, I didn't start this thread. I didn't know someone could split off another thread like this.

    Sorry, this originally (up through Vulkyn's post) was posted in the 18' Freighter Canoe thread which then became a discussion on split canoes; sometimes the original posters feel their threads have been hijacked if the discussion takes a drastic veer in another direction, so I split this thread.
