MartinRF 31 Posted September 12, 2021 Share Posted September 12, 2021 Yesterday's sail ended in a downpour. The good thing is I had rolled up sails and stowed them in my starboard hull before the rain started. The bad thing is I found my foul weather jacked is anything but water tight. Shoulders and arms wet to the skin in minutes. This garment is at the end of its eight season if my notes are correct. Eight seasons of very light use. There are no signs of wear and the cloth looks completely intact yet a few minutes of rain was all it took to get wet. Will washing and re-impregnating bring this thing back to form or is this the new normal for fancy, brand named foul weather gear? Right now this thing is just a fancy wind breaker. /Martin Quote Link to post Share on other sites
