    MacCat Deluxe tie-out dimension

    Does anyone have handy, the distance between the short-side corner tie-outs of the MacCat Deluxe?

    The dimension should be 68" on all recently produced MacCat Deluxes.

    Instant gratification is especially nice when unexpected. - Brian thanks for the response.


    I am considering a pole pocket mod on a Deluxe. It seems to me that in keeping with [your] OES general construction philosophy a center short-side edge tie-out & attendant reinforcement would make the best foundation; alleviating concerns for possible high loading of an otherwise unsupported edge seam.

    A properly supported pole tie at the peak installed during original construction might be another area where structural integrity could be better maintained.

    I am going to be ordering the tarp soon and would love to hear what you and others think about this.
