So even with my modification, the SG still provides more protection then the Claytor.
My "New" 12 x 12 will have a 13' ridgeline when done (maybe a bit more, well see) & whatever the spacing is between the tieouts closest to the gound tie outs. My goal will be a MacCat but with a wider edge near (at?) the ground.
I'll decidedly be adding undercoating to the new tarp. My 9x9 leaks if I hang in such a way as to touch the tarp. I got soaked this morning. It only leaks if I'm touching it & then only where I'm touching it.
