Iosso Water Repellent protects fabric in one easy step

Iosso Water Repellant

Nov 11, 2021

Constant exposure to sunshine, rain, tree sap, bird droppings and dirt can make even the most cared-for outdoor fabrics look dingy. Iosso Water Repellent is the easy way to protect synthetic and natural textiles and maintain their water resistance and original vibrant colors.

Ideal for use on boat, RV, outdoor and patio fabrics, Iosso Water Repellent is a unique water-based formula. It doesn’t contain solvents or silicone, so it won’t darken colors or leave a tacky finish. The spray provides a long-lasting layer of invisible protection without altering the material’s breathability, flexibility or feel. Water Repellent is ideal for solution-dyed acrylics like Sunbrella, natural and hybrid canvas, vinyl, leather and wood.

Water Repellent is simple to apply. Sprayed directly onto clean, dry material until fully saturated, it’s left to dry for 24 hours before being exposed to water. Perfect for new fabric, using it seasonally on older material will help keep mold and mildew from forming.

A 32 oz. spray bottle of Iosso Water Repellent covers approximately 40 sq. ft. and retails for $21.49 USD; a one-gallon container treats up to 150 sq. ft. and costs $49 USD. For professional use, it’s offered in a one-gallon highly-concentrated form that’s mixed with water before applying.

Neptunus 650F Review

Neptunus 650F 400

By Andy Adams

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

The Other Virgin Islands

Sunset off St John

By Mark Stevens

I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.

A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
