Waterproofing the roof of an older Clam Scout
« on: Jan 17, 2021, 08:38 PM »
I have an older Clam Scout that is about perfect for the way I fish but noticed yesterday melting snow was coming thru the rood very easily.  Is there any product other than Scotchgard that anyone has used.  I think I would prefer to brush a product on rather than use a spray can but am open to any suggestions.  Thank you.    Dave

The best option that Iíve found is a product called NeverWet by Rustoleum. Itís a product made for fabric and doesnít discolor or stain. It really works well.

Mix clear silicone with enough mineral spirits so it is almost as thin as water, then brush it on all your seams. If in doubt, a second coat will fill the seams and prevent any leaks. I find it lasts longer than the tent waterproofing spray. Makes the seams look a little shiny, but it works really well.
