    Just noticed I have a leak from my flat roof right in the corner of the room. Need a temp method of repair to stem the ingress of water.

    Weather is foggy and damp, it's a north facing garden and I hear a asteroid is about to hit my location.

    Putting aside the asteroid disaster for a minute, is there any bitumen or repair goo I can use in a damp environment as I suspect it might be a crack or an edge split and I can't see it getting better weather for a few days at least, plus it's too dark to inspect it properly now but first thing tomorrow I can take a look see.

    Cheers for the name, It was an edge crack and a corner hole. Did a bit more inspecting and the whole lot needs replacing so I'm going to reboard it and fibreglass it.
