Ever notice that whatever you
have used duct tape on is something
inappropriate. You always say to
yourself, "I'm gonna fix that right
some day, when I get time/the
right tools/learn the proper way"

Duct tape isn't even appropriate
for use on ducts. It dries out too
easily. Post office won't send
a package taped with it.

We all use it. What is it good
for?

It's good for taping off metal surfaces to be painted or sandblasted and not much more for very long. What I hate is how hard it is to get off the roll.

I had a friend who duct taped the broken sub frame on his GSX 750, he would ride the bike with his gf on the back at 200km/h....

Re: Nautical Oddities

Waterfront bars and boats seem to go together as gathering places for sailors to meet. One bar on Three Mile Harbor on Long Island has taken this to extreme:

MYthbusters built a sailboat entirely from duct tape (except the frame) Damn thing worked too. Maybe they should call it the Flyin' Hawaiian and sail it to Hawaii?

Actually its called duck tape. Proper duct tape for ducts is designed for high temps and doesn't dry out.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Fly Board is the newer version of the Jet Pack pictured earlier on this thread. The jet pack includes it's own ski/power source and costs around 100k all up. Fly Board costs 6k and can attach to almost any jet ski. They are doing rentals on Lake Washington. I went, and it is truly awesome! Just make sure yer shorts are tied on extra tight, LOL!

There is a brand of duct tape called Duck Tape. But the product in its generic form is duct tape.
