I have taken care of this problem for now (waiting for a good test time) but I am wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem? If anyone knows how to get a hold of Brian than can you please direct him or let him know of this.
Brian offers seam sealing as an option. Considering you bought this tarp used and not from him, giving a "warning" and a "slight complaint" is pretty unwarranted. Especially considering you don't know if it came that way from OES or not. Regardless of what the seller might have told you, you really don't know who actually seam sealed it. Either way, always check used gear. Seam sealing is easy.
