    Morning All.
    I have a prout folding boat on which the fabric has weatehred past the point of being usable and has torn in many places, and seems to tear a little more every time its unfolded,
    therefore I have decided the time has come to replace the lot, Does anyone know of a template for the fabricor have any tips for re skining it, (before anyone says copy the old one, yes I have considered that but i have a suspicion that it has been reskinned badly in the past,) I would hope for something a bit more solid that I can start from, if I do it by eye there is a chance it will look a little kack handed.
    Any help/tips would be much apreciated,
    Thanks
    Sam
