   Built a full inclosure on a 40 foot Carver a couple weeks ago.. and when installing the zippers, I often use the acrylic tape to hold the zipper in place while sewing...
   Finished the top, the customer was thrilled but a few days after the boat left, I got a call saying that one of the pannels had fallen off.. for the life of me I couldnt understand what he was talking about..
   A short trip to the boat and the problem was very clear.......In my rush, which happens often around the shop, I had taped the zippers in but had forgotton to sew them in.. The tape held just fine, and oddly enough, went throu the process of me zipping the pannel in and out a couple times.. 
   Love that tape.................................................

   Normally its just a good stick as far as tape goes but when applied to a vinyl reinforcement or anything vinyl, its almost as good as stitching itself.....
