I dig the grossgrain idea... that stuff is LIGHT and incredibly... un-bulky. Do you know if a MSH was used in the grossgrain to connect the two?
My issue with a MSH is that I'd imagine that once you start cranking the tension into the line (Dutch Flyz), it'd dig down into the grossgrain or webbing or what have you at the knot, maybe even bury down into the knot, and cause issues that way.
If anyone who's used webbing or any other kind of hugger for a tarp has any pictures, I'd be very happy to see 'em. ^.^
Thanks, y'all, for your responses.
