    Double check my math, but the corner to corner length should be 10 feet. With it not being a square it should pitch similar to the stock HH tarp.

    its just a simple right triangle c (squared)=a (squared)+b(squared)
    c squared= (6x6)+(8x8)
    c squared=100
    c=10

    Yep - standard 3-4-5 right triangle, but doubled. Kinda short for a hammock tarp hung diagonally, IMO.

    Hypotenuse....


    I love that word and I don't get to use it very often. Since we are on the subject of triangles I thought I would throw that out there.
