weeks now and always enjoy my time spent here. Re the 'Winter Tarp
'07' - great to see in photographic form, something that I have been
toying with (mentally) myself. What is the fabric? Silnylon? Sorry I
can't be there to see the prototype - a bit far from Australia!
Cheers from 'Down Under' - Julie
Welcome to the forum and yes, that tarp is made out of silnylon.
