From that 12 foot reference each foot is incremented 7 inches on each end , so that works out pretty well. What I mark is the span distance because I really don't care about the actual length of the suspension, I just want to know where to tie it off and the distance I do know is the span.
Youngblood...each half foot
is incremented 7 inches on each end maybe? In other words, for every 6" increase in span you make a mark 7" further down the suspension line?
That I understand because it is just what I was saying earlier...and I think you mentioned it to me in a PM once...
If you really and truly mean what you wrote as you wrote it, I don't get it.
