Drytop repair - Not gasket
I busted a seam under the arm of a new Nylon drytop. Its about 1.5" long along the seam and the membrane underneath is torn through. I was wondering If anyone has some advice on how to fix the hole. Since its on the seam, I'm worried that just patching it wont be enough to stop it from splitting in the future.
Here's my tentative plan:
1) tape the outside of the rip to keep everything in place.
2) turn inside out and seal the hole with aquaseal and a small patch, let set
3) sew the patch to the jacket making sure the thread helps pull the rip/seam together
4) use a bigger patch and aquaseal to cover the smaller patch and stitching on the inside and use a small amount of aquaseal to cover the outside stitching
Ive never done this before so any input is appreciated
