It's unlikely they would have made a fuss over that.
This is a hard one... vinyl tape wouldn't have made it waterproof, which is what OP was trying to do. He says he was offshore
, so limited options really... safety
comes first. But yes, vinyl tape might have been better.

I think that if one is in a stand off with a company, and sweet talk hasn't worked, then threats are often the way to go. Our upholsterer was being a right stubborn arse until I asked him if he used the internet
and knew what a blog is... then he played ball. Sadly, our local pizza delivery
service was full of bullshit, until I posted on their FB page and the big boss stepped in...
Sadly, threats of bad publicity are effective. I also would advise people to use them once they have exhausted all positive strategies.
Edit: CF does not condone vendor battles, and will not allow unsubstantiated slander to be published here...
