Quick question here.
Which side of the tarp faces out? The slick side or the tacky side.

It shouldn't matter.

Slick. The tacky side is the polyurethane coating. Dust it with some talc powder to get rid of the tackiness, and be sure you dry it well between trips.

The side WITHOUT the seamsealing, if you can tell the difference.

also depending on which tarp you have the side with the pockets for the guy lines should be toward the ground.

The wet side! :lol:
I can't believe someone else didn't say it first.

I always thought it was the outside that was on the outside.
