Tadpole is a great tarp. I love mine, and know that anyone, including yourself will be very happy with it. I did turn mine inside out, and sealed the ridge seam. Most seem to have no problems with a leak, but I did have some small drops on the under side of the TadPole before sealing. No big leak, but I didn't want to chance it. It's seamed and now I don't have to even think about it.......RR
