    Don't shoot them birds while swimming in the decoys and you want have this problem..;):l

    Don't use flex seal...it only works to fix boats and cracked flower pots....I know I tried it...;)o_O

    They haven't been shot. I save those shots for your decoys.
    I bought these used and some of them leaked. But if ducks come swimming in, they get shot, decoys or no decoys. So whatever I get I'll get enough to fix any new leakers I might have.

    SIKA makes caulk used in glazing (window) and gutter applications. Must be able to handle wide temp swings. I would think any decoy fixed with that would be good do go.

    Found a crack starting at the edge of the slot for the removable keel just into the bottom of the decoy. Any special ideas for that spot?

    Drill a small hold at the end(s) of the crack to stop it. Fill with JB weld

    Hot glue works well for me, fast and easy. Transparent, so you do not need to repaint.
    Just push a little amount in the hole.

    Also Gorilla clear grip contact glue. same effect, longer drying time, but works perfect
