I have some tool rolls to make.

I would like to use canvas like Sunforger as it has a good feel.  But the tool rolls will be used in a marine enviroment (boat, salt water).  Will they rot out?  Is there a way to treat the cloth or a better cloth to ues?  I don't like the way Sunbrella handles and Cordova with the waterproffing would not breath.

Hi Mike,

The Sunforger is already preshrunk and marine treated. It will hold up well for this purpose. I would say go ahead and use it. By the way, the heavier "Numbered Duck" that Sailrite sells is not marine treated and would rot quickly compared to the Sunforger (Sunforger is often called Otis Permasol and Vivatex as well).

Thanks, Matt
