    I jumped on the spinn boat because it was lighter and that you could touch it whilst wet and it wouldn't seep like silnylon.

    A bit concerned to hear about this folding issue- but then again all sail spinnakers aren't appropriate for tarp spinn (which is why we don't have them anymore.)

    Spinn tarp owners comment?

    Ditto Durability proven.
    Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course.

    I've got an OES MacCat Deluxe in Spinn - it's been great so far. I've had it for a little over a year and slept about 30 nights under it, including some torrential Alabama thunderstorms. No durability issues so far.

    I have a 4 year old OES MacCat Ultra spinnaker tarp and i love it! The lightness of it has kept me from justifying cuben (so far).
