Anyone know something good to fix a tiny crack in a kayak? I tried some kind of marine bondo but the bondo kept sticking to the knife more than the crack.

I own one of these KC Welders and fixed a few kayaks that had one too many encounters with rocks on the Potomac River. One has been on the water for 5 years since the repair with no further issues.

You can also do it this way:
