    You might want to try using a "French Prussic" knot. A bit different, and it seems to give a better bite.

    You might want to try using "French Prussic" knots. My experience is they hold more securely than a straight prussic. Simply google "French Prussic" and see how you tie it. Hope that helps.

    My two cents: I think that unless you used really thick/strong shock cord (which would add unwated weight) , your tarp could get blow around and out of desired shape during strong winds.

    Don't know if you want to risk it, ..but you could add a couple of attachment loops half way up both sides of your tarp. Pulling them out then, will significantly increase the room you have inside.

    I sort of combine both through the use of a larger (11 1/2' X 11 1/2') tarp. Then, by tying the hammock off to one side, it leaves quite a nice, large area for me to hang out.
