    Question Help! How to add Internal Pole Mod

    My mother in law sewed a 12' winter haven tarp for me a couple of yrs ago. Now I have a Bridge hammock and would like to have her add internal pole mods. I have NO idea where to start. I don't know what to buy and where to have her add it, and I don't know where to buy the poles for lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    My method was to add a Beasty D to each of the four corners,
    measure the width of my tarp,
    order some .344 pole sections from Quest (it doesn't matter if the poles end up being a few inches longer than the width as that just makes the poles "hoop" at a slight angle, which I wanted anyway)
    https://www.questoutfitters.com/tent_poles.ht,
    make an interior ridgeline w/ a couple prussics on it (to hold the hoop at the top),
    and install the poles from D to D them attach to the prussic on the internal ridgeline for adjustability.

    As far as attachment points for the poles. If you are interested in the least work possible. You can also simply attach a length of chord to the tarps existing tie outs with a small loop on the end to accept the pole. In this case I used poles I purchased with a ugq tarp. Since this particular tarp is a thunder flyÖ(smaller width than the ugq) I made up the difference in width by using approximately 7Ē of chord at all 4 points.A082FD12-D70C-4D3A-8ACF-84B806A6BB93.jpgEACB7AB7-9A16-41F5-B3D9-01B83AA2D053.jpg
