A question to anyone who has made their own hammock tarp (a la blackcat) -- considering this is my first sewing project with silnylon, does anyone have any advice/recommendations in terms of whether it is wise to make the cat cuts? or to stay rectangular? (or hex?)
It looks like there is quite a bit of fabric cut away from the blackcat -- does it provide adequate coverage in rain and/or wind?
I did buy some scrap material to practice on (cotton, so not even similar to sil, but was ~$0.80/yd) and test a shape, maybe between that and other people's input I can get it close to right on the first shot with the sil??
I realize there are a number of variables here (hammock length, ridge length, etc.)... just kinda nervous and looking for some advice... 12' ridgeline w/ 62-ish wide sil.
