Dear all,
I know the question of re-proofing old rubber-skinned folding kayaks comes up quite regularly. There is a member of the UK SongofthePaddle website who has been doing some tests with various re-proofing options. I thought many of you might find this interesting.

It may be worth my mentioning that Malcolm has tried to join and post on Foldingkayaks.org several times but says he had no success, I'm not sure why. I thought I'd therefore link to the results of his research here.

All the best,
Ian
