You’ve got to think of why you are soaking it. Most modern day canvas tents don’t leak but the seams might! This is the main reason to soak a tent, to swell the seams. I’d suggest you still put a fly over your tent no matter what for two reasons. First, too protect the tent from bird pooh and others. Second, it helps keep it dryer and warmer in the colder Months. Bear in mind you may still find condensation in your tent after a cold night and the family has been tucked up inside. This is no your tent leaking of course but still try to not touch the sides of the tent.
