    What tarp do you have? Most tarps come without sealing although most cottage venders offer the sealing. Some tarps, by design, do not need the ridge sealed but will still need the pullouts sealed.

    I think he is using Dutch's- 2.8mm, 1.1gm/M, 1500#break strength 'rope' with reflective tracer. I may try some of this myself. Looks like a solid/lite suspension.
