Second trip out with better Pics.
Not much wind, but the rain was consistent for about an hour come daylight. This is the WL full open. Its actually covering two Hennessy Hammocks, so the fit was snug to say the least! The additional added center tie out helps keep things tight. Plus it add two benifits, one mentioned earlier (added for mod), the other we found helpful, and noted that find a few pics below.
This shows the modded "wings" tucked under and clipped. It works best in better weather, when there is less need to batten down the hatches. With the added stash pockets for the lines we can use the center tie out and match it to the HH, or leave one side diamond with the other side used as a "porch" cover. When the weather is mostly nice, meaning a chance of rain (tarp hung), I like as little obstruction of my view from my hammock as possible. Thus the reason for the easier setup diamond folding mod.
The edges are not as taunt as I would have liked, but a stronger catch than a mitten hook and thicker stretch line would probably cure that.
Flipping the tarp and hooking it inside out shows the added pockets for line storage, and the mitten hook and stretch cord for pulling the edges together. When we flipped the edges inside out for a photo, we found an added bonus for the mods.
By flipping the edges backwards, the entire top section of tarp not only catches and directs fresh rain water, but funnels it directly to the center line. We didn't have an attachment for a bottle, as we didn't think of it till we tried to take a photo. But as you can tell by the shape of the tarp, we filled two sepperate 3 Liter hydrations packs fairly quickly. Way easier than trying to angle the tarp to direct water the Hennessy way.
