aqua seal

is this still the best stuff out there for repairing a leaky spray skirt? is it best to put the aqua seal on with the skirt on the cockpit or off?

I normally put on Aquaseal when it's stretched.

For bigger tears a product called Iron Mend works great. It is an iron on patch.

Sew it!

I've sewn my larger tears with needle and thread and then aqua sealed them.

At this point, my skirt has more aqua seal than neoprene. Works just fine. Thin coating on the outside, thick on the inside (I learned after hole 5 or so). Stretches just fine, I only apply with the skirt off the boat.

Sewing is the key..
