I got a boat cover with my boat and it needs to be retreated somehow so it will repel water better. It does a pretty good job with the exception back towards the back where it lays kind of low against the sun pad. I am wondering if there is a good way to retreat this cover.

I picked up some of this stuff, but I am open to other suggestions.

I prefer 303 Fabric Guard (http://www.303products.com/tech/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=429)


Clean the cover on the boat with dish soap and a brush.

Wipe and let the cover dry out.

Put the 303 in a sprayer and spary it on.

Let the cover sit in the sun for a day to dry the 303.

Thanks. I have some of that too and will try that. The cover will not see much rain now that I have it, but just in case I have it out somewhere and need to keep the water out.

303 also makes a good cleaner that they recommend using prior to the Fabric Guard. You can get it here:

Is there any way to lift/elevate your cover off the sun pad? For some reason, osmosis or something, if any cover I've had is touching something, then right where it touches, you get moisture through the cover, This has happened with brand new covers, old covers, covers retreated with 303, or Scotchgard. I've had,done them all. Seems to be worse if it is horizontal, like your sun pad.
