Maybe, but it seemed fairly thin already. It didn't seem like it needed thinning to me, but perhaps did given that the brush marks didn't flow out.Would some thinner in the paint have helped it to lie flatter?
You could call it that.It sounds like a wavy matte finish? Fish in it, camp under it at night propped up against a tree.
On one trip down the Suwanee River we camped at Big Shoals.You could call it that.
I have a nice 5.3 ounce bug bivy that I use for backpacking or bike touring. Also a 7 ounce and a 12 ounce tarp that I have use either of to sleep under when backpacking or bike touring. Either would nicely supplement the shelter the pirogue offers if the weather was iffy.
Hopefully I will catch many fish in it and spend many nights under it. If not there will at last be lots of afternoon on the local lakes.
