    DIY plans or dimensions for a Superfly clone?

    Hi guys, first things first. I'm broke folks.
    I want a superfly... and I will end up buying one but until and I get rid of all the sil-nylon I have on tap and I get employment... DIY is all I can afford. Gives me the ability to add length/width as well to cater for a 13' ridgeline.
    My google-foo is off and I can't find full dimensions of the superfly.

    If you have them and are willing to share can you please share plans or dimensions?

    I've guesstimated i'll need 7 measurements, 2 are commonly available.:
    1. Ridgeline length = 11'
    2. Width = 10'
    3. Width between main curve = 6' (Thanks BackpackerGuy)
    4. Main curve depth = ?
    5. Length of doors = ?
    6. Width of door= ?
    7. Door curve depth = ?
    8. (and 8) Pull out position = ?

    2 down 5 more to go.

    Found ridgeline info from the guy who kinda started it Lostbiker.

    Try this for size..
    I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, make sure I stay here.


    When I see lovers' names carved into a tree, I don't think it's cute. I think it's strange how so many people take knives on a date.

    Thanks gunner76, I've made one of each of those. They work great!

    BackPacker, any curve depths for main and door?
    What's the distance from
    Ridgeline to bottom of door?
    Thanks in advance.

    Highlights:
    Cut/hem the panels separately first.
    Sew panels together with 1/4" seam. Then with 7/8" Polyester binding tape folded over the top
