My failure was all my fault due to a faulty drysuit repair. This was my first time installing my own wrist seals. I used neoprene cement. It didn't stick very well as I managed to pull the entire left wrist seal off! I've since cleaned both surfaces, glued it with neoprene cement again, and then ran around the beads on both the inside and outside with aquaseal. I'll probably use aquaseal for the whole job next time since it seems to work a lot better than the black stuff. There's a learning curve to DIY drysuit repair. Neoprene cement worked beautifully for the neck seal but didn't seem to take as well on the wrist seals.

I'm not scared to work on ANYTHING. I may screw it all up, but I ain't scared :-)
