recaulking the roof
« on: March 29, 2008, 01:03:15 AM »
I have a general question.  I am going to recaulk my roof but I can't seem to reach the middle seam.  Will the roof support me if I slide on top of it to do the middle seam (230 lbs)?  Also on a different topic anyone have idea the best thing to do to fix pin holes (have about 3 of them) in the canvas of the bunk end?  Thanks in advance.

For the roof, I'd just try and spread the weight out when you're doing it, but I think it should be fine. Just keep in mind its a thin roof, and can dent or crack if you have your knee pointed into it, etc.. Hopefully others who have done a center seam can speak from experience.

Ditto.

It will support you, but you want to be careful about it.  You could always slap together a makeshift brace for the inside if you were worried.

Make sure you use the right caulk.  I recommend 3M 5200 Marine caulk.
