I have a pair of the blue semi-dry paints. The clear tape that has been used to seal the seam on the inside has come away in the crotch area and don't keep as dry as the used to. Does anyone know where I could get this type of clear sealant tape?

Same thing happened to my pair a year or two ago. Contacted Rasdex and they resealed them for me. From memory I just had to pay the courier fees.

Cheers but I've got it sorted. Sent rasdex a message and they said to send them back and they'll fix them free of charge. So pretty happy with that.

Can someone please tell me why kayakers paint their crotch? Sorry I am new to this and don't know all your practices yet. :angel:

Cheers
