Products: Seam Sealer Fights Fabric Leaks

Iosso Seam Sealer

Mar 14, 2024

Whether it’s a simple cotton or a modern synthetic, seams are often the weakness in waterproofing. Exposed to UV rays, wind and extensive use, even the most well-constructed gear can leak at stitch points. Seam Sealer from Iosso Products creates an invisible barrier at these stress points to keep water out, without changing the look or feel of the textile.

Seam Sealer prevents leaks in cotton, cotton blend, polyester and synthetic woven fabrics. With the correct seam construction, it’s even effective on vinyl-coated and vinyl laminate materials. This specific benefit makes it broadly ideal for boat covers, awnings, and cushions and even patio umbrellas. Seam Sealer provides protection that doesn’t stiffen fabric or alter its color.

Seam Sealer’s sponge applicator tip runs along both sides of the stitching until the thread is thoroughly saturated. After drying 24 hours, the supple fabric is now invisibly protected, without any residue or silicone. After washing or extended use, a touch-up coating can be reapplied. A 4-ounce dabber will treat 50′ of seam and costs US$8.52.Available in chandleries.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
