If you look at the pic below, my hammock suspension (grey amsteel) is coming down and actually pushes up slightly on the tarp. In this particular setup I was in full storm mode. We had windy conditions with rain, I stayed dry and my BB hammock is under there. The tarp was tucked down very close to my hammock.
I just posted a mod I made to the tarp below. I just need to get outside and test it. I tested it the best I could in the house but really need to get outside and give it a try. I posted it over on my original thread to keep this one on track with size discussions. Click Link
Thanks for the advice BC. I considered that too... I have a solid supplement system for "Storm Mode" I believe...though I wont know until I try. Thats why I was leaning tword the 138" Rl for my DIY 11' (110" RL) hammock. Or maybe even a 140-142"???
The difference also is that there is more sag/distance from the 11' Hammock RL to the hammock so this adds to the exposure Id think.Kinda what you where saying about a yours. Im gonna play with the angles still yet to see what I can get.
