Re: Thread Thread: Trimaran Trampolines and UV Resistant Thread

If they had used Tenara, they would not have degraded like that in just 4 years. My guess is that they used the bog standard V92 polyester thread, as that is what is usually used for sail and canvas repairs and they did not want to bother setting the machine up for Tenara for your repair.

Just mt two cents worth.
