SOF fabric options in Australia

Postby SimonM » Thu Jan 19, 2017 7:04 am

Hi all,

I know ballistic nylon is available from Skin Boats in the US but it is pricey. I have my suppliers in the US searching for uncoated ballistic nylon to see if I can get it cheaper but in the mean time I can access good quality loomstate canvas from a supplier/manufacturer here in Australia. I know the lifespan of canvas may not be as long as nylon or polyester, but is this likely to be suitable for skinning a boat??? The price is much more affordable and access is certainly more convenient.

Thanks in advance.
