    Where can I get a 13 ft snake skin?

    I'm planning on getting a 13 ft tarp for a ridge runner and looking for a sleeve (snake skin). I've used doubles on 11 ft tarps but the long single sleeve seems easier to deal with (no bubble in the middle). MoutainGoat has been mentioned in the forum but the website doesn't have a 13 ft option. I emailed Kat (via the website) and haven't heard back. And her contact page hasn't been updated since 2017.

    I asked WarBonnet and they said they didn't know anyone who makes 13 ft sleeves.

    I figured 13 ft sleeves (or a double instead of single length) might not be standard; they'd be special request. But I'm sure there are some people who use them without destroying a hair scrunchy.

    I have a 13’ tarp from WB and use a 12’ snakeskin. It’s a little work but fits.

    For those following this thread, WarBonnet sells a skins for their 13 ft superbly - but it's a two piece kit; not one single.

    I would contact Dutch and ask if they could make their continuous 12' 6" Tarp Sleeve a foot longer.

    You could always make one. Even if you don't have a sewing machine, it's an easy project to hand stitch.

    I got the 12' double MoutainGoat skins for a 13' superfly. Almost covers everything. Enough that it works for me.

    Chill Gorilla snake skins are 14.5’. They are 2 pieces, 134” & 39”, nylon with drawstrings and toggles on each end. I like them a lot and have them on my DW & WB tarps.
