/ Tent Repair
I got a quote from a sailmaker for £40. As I paid £50 for the tent in the first place this is a bit pricy, are there any places that would do it for cheaper? Essentially, a 30cm x 40cm panel needs to be replaced.
You could try sewing it to keep the material together, then use seam sealant to waterproof and protect the sewing? It would depend on how flexy the plastic window is, too stiff and this bodge may not work.
I like his idea better, an apologetic email telling them that it cracked and wondering if there was anything you could do to get it fixed and avoid the replacement cracking in cold weather in future may work wonders.
How long ago did you buy it?
I doubt you will find anywhere that can actually replace that panel for an amount of money that will make it worthwhile.
So if you don't like the ducktape idea I would go with a new tent or an attempt to get it replaced under warranty.
