    Superfly seamseal

    So, I ordered the Superfly the other day. It's on back order, so it'll be awhile before I get it. I was curious... will I/should I seam seal this? I'll need to pick up another tube of Silnet if so... forgot about that.

    Well, from warbonnet website:

    "Our tarps have lightweight low-stretch polyester edge binding on the ridgeline and a rolled hem around the peremiter. The binding along the ridgeline makes for a low-stretch ridgeline seam that never needs to be seam sealed."

    Guess that answers that.

    Yeah, it really doesn't need the seam sealing.

    I did seal the pull outs. Water leaks there. Not critical but nice to fix that before you have water dripping in your boots beside your hammock.

    What do yall use for seam sealing? From what I know you basically take a little denatured alchohol and disolve some clear silicon cauk and apply lightly with a paint brush.
