Leaky seams!
« on: July 02, 2013, 09:54:50 PM »
Noticed I have a couple of leaky seams at the New Forest (well, the tent does). 

No idea what waterproofer to buy.  Are they all much of a muchness or are some brands better than others? How much do I need? Should I do the whole tent?

Help (please!)

I believe the usual suggested solution is Fabsil ...

When did you last proof it (or how old is the tent)?  if more than a year ago I'd be inclined to do the whole thing while you have the tin open.
