I took all 5 loops off the center of the tarp, then used 2 of them to make tie outs for hanging "square" it works, but provides limited coverage because as stated above, my hammock is 8' long, at the center, the tarp is 8' 9", & actually, if you count the rope my hammock hangs on the ridgeline with, my hammock is actually 8' 8", so 1/2 " coverage (overhang) on each end with the 9by tarp.
I was going to order the 12 x 12 but for the past few days, it's not been on the web site. I'm going to call them today & see what's up. Very likely I'll be modifying it to something similar to a Maccat tarp, so when done it will be about 12' on the ridge & in the shape of a Maccat. I'll try to post pictures
