reinforcing spray deck stitching?

I have an old deck that fits perfectly but the tunnel stitching is beginning to fray at the top. I put in some more stitches in that area to take the stress off at that point but I was wondering if putting a layer of gorilla glue over the stitches and just letting it harden stop any more fraying.

I am suggesting this because I have spilt g-glue several times over the years on my work table outside and those globs have hardened to the extent that they are impossible to scrape off or remove in any way whatsoever.

Any other suggestions most welcome.
Thank you in advance.

I have an old Mountain Surf skirt that was fraying and had stitches pulling out. I reinforced it by covering the deteriorating areas with Aquaseal. It is waterproof and has more flexibility than Gorilla Glue. I did this like 7 years ago and it is still holding up like it was yesterday.

Aquaseal and Tear Aid. Can't say enough good stuff about these products.

x3: Aquaseal.

Throw in a few reinforcement stitches and Aquaseal over them.
