    Has anyone tried Thompson's Water Seal for a water repellant on their dodger or bimini? Any recommendations out there will be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah, Thomson's clear waterseal works great on acrylic and cotton fabrics. They make a version for "tropical" environments that has extra UV and mildew protection, too. Make sure to get the clear variety; they have colored versions that would wreck havoc on your deck.

    I always suggest using this stuff to folks who have me make their sail covers. It's a LOT cheaper than 3M 303. Also, camping supply stores sell waterproofer for nylon tents; it's a bit more expensive but does the trick.

    Thanks Aaron. I ran across your Picasa site a couple of days ago through a search on the old web site. There are some great pictures there of all the work accomplished on Asia Marie. I think that a link posted somewhere on the new site would be helpful to the Association members so that we can continue to steal your ideas. I just finished building a microwave cabinet for the galley and plan to begin work on the Norlund Bunk next week.
