My Silnylon order just arrived and I'm planning to make a 10'x10' tarp, basically following the instructions in Ed Speer's book.
I'm not clear on the intent behind the ridgeline pulltabs. Is the tarp supposed to be suspended from those tabs? Or should the guyline run from one tree to the other with the tarp placed over it?
Tying to the ridgeline tabs would certainly make hanging the tarp easier, and necessarily center it perfectly. But wouldn't the stresses of that be too much for the fabric and/or the tab attachment points?
What's the best way to suspend the tarp?
