POLYESTER uncoated * 9 oz. * Plain weave * 66" wide
New fabric (Sep 20, 2018)
This is tight weave fabric with a fairly smooth finish. Easy to sew without the pull holes you would get with the original 8 oz we sold for so many years. Finishes soak in well rather than just sitting on the surface.
There is some shrinkage left in the fabric but we still recommend sewing it on tightly rather than depending on the fabric to shrink to get it tight on the boat.
I recommend ordering 1 foot longer than your boat length. On wide boats such as the MessAbouts, order 2 extra feet.
SOLD BY THE FOOT
WARNING One of my clients used Coelan as a coating and it caused the skin to wrinkle horribly. This fabric may be not compatible with Coelan.

I am seeing more and more reports of this fabric relaxing with Paint such as Rustolem also. We have been unable to figure out what is causing this.
I am going to recommend that if you don't want wrinkles use one of our other fabrics.
