I got the nice gore-tex Stohlquist top about five years ago. I haven't used the Kokatat top, but I would highly recommend this one. It was 100% warm, dry, and bomber for the first four seasons. I had the neck gasket replaced once after the third season. This year I have been finding that I have massive amounts of water in my boat at the end of the day (i.e. more than a gallon). I think it is due to my drytop (doesn't seem to be waterproof anymore), though my skirt may be partly to blame, too (Snapdragon). Any advice? There is one tiny spot of stitching that needs work but the top is otherwise intact. Do I have to re-waterproof the entire top? Thanks in advance.
