    Default Hewes SR 180 top material?

    I have a 2006 hewes 180 searunner. Does anyone know what kind of material they made the canvas top out of?

    It has a slick surface on the exterior and is a canvas of some kind.

    It is starting to crack on me (my fault - I cleaned it with bleach trying to get birch sap off of it....). I am hoping to make it last one more season before having a new one made - so looking to patch it. I have been using repair aid tape and it works okay, but it tends to come loose after a while.

    I have been treating the top with 303 fabric protector -and it is quite slippery now.

    Also - some good reading here on newer materials used for tops.
