    i don't seal until it's necessary.
    i use this stuff when needed.
    you'll probably need to seal the pull outs first.

    Muskrat has mambajamba tarp that has seen many, many times out and it has not been sealed. I have a DIY tarp that has a similar ridge line and it has not been sealed either.
    Pics or it didn't happen so here is video proof.

    yeah man, it's good stuff.
    there are a few other threads with more info.
    here's one and you can run a search for " flowable " for a bunch more.
    the flowable characteristics help it penetrate better than the thicker stuff.
    sil net is good stuff too, but i like the permatex a little better. i find it a little easier to work with and a little neater too.

    I use Permatex flowable silicone on my tarps. Works great and gets into the stitching well as flatline mentioned.
    I sealed the side pull outs on my Superfly. The ridgeline on your tarp does not need to be sealed.
