Knowing your fabric
by: Tammy

Hi Carl,
It's going to be hard to know what boat cover material you have, if you haven't been using these fabrics for a while like fabricators do. What I can tell you is that if it feels more like a true soft fabric it's likely Sunbrella or some other Acrylic.

If it looks like a fabric, but seems to have a coating, then it's more likely to be a polyester. If it is much more plastic like, then possibly a PVC or laminate. If your looking to waterproof it, and it is leaking, then it is likely Sunbrella.

You might try Iosso or Starbrite products.
