Here is my first thread on this Forum This was in the bottom of a seabag all crushed and smelling like mildew from almost 10' feet away. Soaked it in cold water and let it dry on a hat wring and it came out holding its original form. Including the eight prongs at the corners. Original owner's name can just be seen on the brim, Bock. Lost the mildew smell as well. All comments welcome....
