    Pitched right I see it working. You'd have to have one end high, to drain the "V".

    I've done something similar to smokehouse's three tree setup, because I was already using multiple trees for two hammocks. It actually ended up raining pretty hard that weekend, and apart from moving the hammocks closer together in the center, we didn't change the pitch much, and stayed very dry in a hard thunderstorm. The trick was to keep the wide opening higher than the narrow, so water would run off the less open end.

    This looks like the first "doubles" tarp and certainly adds head room when your stuck under the tarp.

    Couldn't you just notch a shaft/stick on both ends and the tension hold it in place, so you wouln't need anything else? You could dip each notched end in the liquid rubber, let it dry and the ends will help protect the two ridgeline ropes.

    I was going to pitch the Wide end high hoping that the “V” would drain ok.

    Mustardman,,, I’ve pitched mine that way also when My wife is with me and We’ve got wet, so I came up with this design for the storms and also give her privacy

    I still really like the concept and am in no hurry SmokeHouse.

    It's too hot to spend much time hanging here in Texas right now anyway.

    Thanks for continuing to keep it on your radar screen inspite of all the extra stuff going on in your world that put a whole new, less entertaining, slant on your "SmokeHouse" name.

    Our current "HoneyMoon Suite" is a Kelty Noah's 12 x 12 and in addition to being cumbersome, there is the same privacy issue for my wife that makes doors/flaps appealing.

    We've stayed dry in storms with the current set up, but it will be much better using gear designed for the purpose rather than trying to make the tarp do more than I know how to make it do.

    I hope to make this tarp sometime this Summer... one way or another...
