3. Modified gore section replacement. If a gore section that is located next to the lower lateral band on a
bias-constructed canopy does not have damage extending into a corner that is bounded by the lower
lateral band and a radial seam, the section may be replaced using a modified method as follows:
a. When removing the damaged section, cut the section material diagonally across the corner. Allow
the corner material of the original section to remain intact and also allow a sufficient amount of
material to remain to preclude the replacement section overlapping the pocket band.
b. Except for the procedure in step (a), complete the section replacement using the applicable
procedures outlined in the NORMAL GORE SECTION REPLACEMENT paragraph, above, and the
details in the illustration below.
When replacing a gore section on a bias-constructed canopy using the
modified replacement method, it is not necessary to remove the V-tab
from the radial seam located alongside the damaged section.
4. Multiple gore section replacement. If two or more adjacent sections with a bias-constructed gore require
replacement, cut and remove all affected sections, including the joining diagonal seams as prescribed in
the NORMAL GORE SECTION REPLACEMENT paragraph, above. Prepare the material for the
replacement sections and join the replacement sections together with ½-inch wide lapped seams (see
illustration below). Install the joined replacement sections using the applicable procedures in the
NORMAL GORE SECTION REPLACEMENT paragraph, above.
