Try a Boat dealer, or marine supply store. They will provide you with repair options. Take the canopy with you to show them.

Given the small area to repair, I would just take a trip of fiberglass cloth so that it overlaps the crack about 1/2 in on either side and 1/2 inch longer than the crack and then use thin ca to bond it to the canopy. The repair will be stronger than the canopy itself, I'm sure....

PS- This repair is done FROM THE INSIDE of the canopy....

Be careful with the fumes (eyes and lungs) when the stuff kicks off.....

Ive used glass cloth and Selleys Araldite 5 minute 2 part epoxy glue, works very well. Just put a layer of glue, place cloth over the top with tweasers, push down into glue till its all wet....wait a while lol.

For the love of the hobby
