    Clark XL rain fly leaking?

    Howdy everyone. I have been a lurker for quite awhile and I finally took the plunge and purchased an NX-250 as my first hammock. I made 2 trips in late fall last year with no rain or bad weather. We moved and I now have my 250 set up on the side of the house tweaking and playing with it trying to get the most comfortable hang. I'm also testing my comfortabililty with different bags and clothing and outside temps. I have had a couple nights of light rain and had absolutely no issues (BTW I love this thing, it is so comfortable). Tonight we had thunder storms and a torrential down poor for a good 2 hours. I have my XL rain fly set up with a continuous ridge line under it and all along the seam in the middle water dipped on my hammock. I thought maybe it was just running down the ridge line, so I moved the ridge line over, wiped the bottom with a towel and watched. Within 3-4 mins it started dripping again along that seam. Should I have seam sealed it? Is this normal? Do I somehow have it set up incorrectly? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Mike
