Great product and service as always
2.2 oz HEX70 XL
This was my first time working with rip stop nylon. I would say I'm an intermediate sewer. The material was not very difficult to work with. I managed to sew a serviceable boat tent for a 25ft boat in a matter of 3 days. I'm fairly confident that it will last through many boating seasons in the pacific northwest. I did use a hot knife tip on a soldering iron to cut the circular holes for the mooring light and the other knob thing for tow ropes. Then applied double fold bias tape around the hole's edge to prevent wear on the edge. Other areas that I cut with sissors didn't fray during the construction process. I'm very happy with the quality of the material. I did order nylon/vinyl seam stick tape from a marine upholstery company that I believe made all the difference in being able to easily sew 10 yard long seams in a limited space home setting. I wish I could have ordered that product from RSBR, but maybe that wouldn't be a high demand product? If I get roped into doing more boat tents for our friends I'll certainly be back for more material.
RBTR helped me select what was best for my project and sent everything packed nice and neat really quick. Make sure to use all the info they have available when making your own selections. This is a one stop shop that I’ll be coming back to in the future.
Best in class
