If the Noah tarp leak's, would there be a problem with rewaterproofing the tarp?
Noah's Tarp 12x12 for ENO doublenest?
I wouldn't see why not. I have used one of the spray treatments on tent rainflys with good results. I will do my 12 with out hesitation.

That is surprising to hear of that failure. I've had one for about eight years, and it is still more bomb-proof than any of my silnylon tarps. The PU coating will degrade if left in the sun or heat for too long though.

The 12 has worked perfectly in the few times (five days/nights total) I've used it.
The issue with the 9 has shaken my faith in the Noah's Tarps though, and I've switched to sylNylon types. They've seen considerably more use with no problems so far.
Take it easy,
