Re: Insurance

I would suggest talking to the Early Medieval Alliance they are an umbrella group that gets a faily good isnurance policy for member groups based on volume; they might be able to reduce it a bit. But apart from that what Matt said really.

Re: Leaking Tent

Langley, I don't think its fireproof, but it is not pertochmical based so definatly doesn't increase the flamibility of the Canvas. This is exactly the reason why I use it. Its more expensive than alot of other solutions but definately on the safer end.

Just a random thought, but do we think that the brigs were made without a lining, or that the plates were rivited to the front, then a separate lining added (without the n...
