flex seal for layout blind

Postby losthunter1 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 3:47 pm

:help:
OK here's a two parter:
1. Has anyone ever used flex seal? You know, the one where it seals the holes in a screendoor and uses it as the floor in a boat.
2. I have the idea to spray coat the inside of my layout blind to keep the rain out, anyone else think this is a good idea?

That actually sounds like a pretty good idea. I will be interested to hear if anyone has tried it.

My dad used some flex seal on a boat that sprung a leak and it worked great.

I have used it. I found a can in clearance at BB & B for $3. It works.

use plasti-dip instead, it is a much much better product! And, you can get it in matte finish basic camo colors.

just keep in mind that it will keep moisture IN just as well as it will keep it OUT.

How well will it keep it out? Could you put your layout in a few inches of water?

if you use plasti-dip and spray 3-4 coats on the inside, yes you could put it in a few inches of water. But I would treat both the inside and outside. For the outside, spray the bottom and up about 6 inches around the sides....3-4 coats on the outside as well.

Plasti-dip is a better product and it is less expensive as well.
