    Thanks guys. I am actually very pleased with my repair. I did thin the silicone when I seam sealed this tarp and it worked just great.

    This tarp is being loaned to a buddy of mine all next week. We will be with 3 other friends on a 7 day AT trek. I will have HG cuben. Looks like we could have temps down in the 20s our first night out! Whoo Buddy! Now that's hanging.

    Fantastic job on the patch! Thanks for starting this thread.

    on a side note...
    I work for an asphalt company and our asphalt plants run hot rock through metal chutes. The metal wears down over time causing holes. For a quick patch, they will put 100% silicone on a square piece of cardboard and place over hole on metal. Believe it or not... this patch will outlast the metal around it.
    and then

    Wow, that is hard to believe! I believe you though...You would think the hot rocks would tear the cardboard or melt the silicone somehow. I guess it would depend on the size of the hole and where it's placement is?

    I repaired a parachute nylon hammock with Tear-Aid recently with great results. I've been napping in that hammock for a couple weeks now and the patches aren't moving at all. Every now and again I pick at the edges with my fingernail just to test but so far they aren't moving.
