There are no boat/marine stores near me that I am aware of(I will double check though), is there a comparable product that I might find at Home Depot or an auto parts place?
Another thought is JB Weld... seems like it might be perfect for this application... thoughts?
I'm desperate to patch this up ASAP... riding a bicycle everywhere is real pain...!
JB Weld should do the job. You might try Ace Hardware for the Marine Tex, the local ones here have it. It works really well for that type of repair, as well as a lot of other stuff.
BTW, congrats on finding the electrical bugaboo. They can be tough.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."J.
