    I used SilNet on my vertex tarp. It was easy and worked well.

    Inside or Outside or Does it Matter

    When you apply the seam sealant, whatever the variety, do you apply it from the inside or the outside of the tarp? Mine just developed a slight leak right along the ridgeline seam this weekend during a pounding rain. Mine's a bearpaw wilderness designs 9.5x9' tarp.

    Silnet works really well on silnylon. I use painters tape for guidelines and it makes for a cleaner finish with straight lines. Wait silnylon! Who uses that heavy stuff anymore? Haha. jK everyone

    I think when you buy a tarp it should come seam sealed.

    I need to buy a sewing machine. Then learn how to thread it. Then learn how to use it. Then buy the supplies. Then attempt to make stuff. After all that I hope I am proud whether its in one piece or not. Maybe by then I can afford Cuban. Right now sil seams high. I am so jealous of those use have all the goodies. I know it takes time and that's part of the goodness of the whole process. It makes me feel like a kid again. Can't wait for Christmas. In the past I would feel guilty wanting or buying something, but all this stuff I get is in pairs. My son loves this as much( maybe not as much) as me.

    Oh, what I meant was, when you buy a tarp from any vendor, company, or manufacturer it should come seam sealed. Sorry if that came out wrong in the first post lol

    I just finished making a new sil tarp. Just bought some silicone to seal the ridgeline. What a timely thread.
