I've done this with my large GG12x12 tarp and it works great. Gives lots of room behind the hammock to stay dry during long storms.

This is the bomb. I was thinking of making a WP sock/tarp combo spun off of the HNO Dirigible, and this design was the best I could think up by my lonesome at the time.
I did abandon the idea of the wp sock, hoping that the silny version of the dirigible will be available for production in the next few years. This tarp will fit the bill till then. Thanks for the specs Catavarie...
