fairly sure i read in a thread a while back a tip to use some sort of gum or glue to re-seal seams; anyone re-call what the stuff was, how to apply and where to get it?

it was for sealing seams, something from an artist supply shop i think as against a surf brand.

Or Dixie mentioned some old school stuff he bought that worked a treat. Better than Black Witch etc he said, but I can't remember what it was!

well done spongebobbrownpants, latex it its, this is the thread, 4th post down...

viewtopic.php?f=25&t=36267&p=394396&hilit=latex#p394396

...of course i would'nt need it if ripcurl would a) make a suit that did'nt leak within a couple of months and b) honour their warranty.
