You can also get cuben tape (double sided), or mylar tape (single sided) that works extremely well. The McNett Tenacious Clean Tape that this site sells is also a good option.

Bill,
I'm curious -
1)Was the seam stitched and taped, or just stitched?
2)Is the tear along the stitch holes or a little bit away?

If you have digital image capability, it would be interesting to see what is going on. And it might help with solutions.

Thanks
