Bimini Leaking

Are there any products out there that might be effective at re-waterproofing a canvas bimini ?

Thanks

I used the 3M 303 product on my bimini. Get the fabric clean and dry first, lay it out flat somewhere, and spray away. I used it twice, and it worked pretty well.

Re: Bimini Leaking

I use cement sealer, which likely is much cheaper than other products. I brush it on twice a year and my bimini, which is 13 years old, never leaks and never seems to age.

Re: Bimini Leaking

Go to any outfit that makes canvas products. They have industrial strength stuff that's far superior to anything you can buy retail. Take your own spray bottle and get them to fill it.

Thompson Water Seal. The liquid will have a white color while going on. I use it once a year.

Thompson's Water Seal works good.
