    Man I hope she doesn't read this.
    The SF is a huge tarp. I don't think you'll have any issues covering the SB.

    I'm equally comfortable in my WBBB and my SBLH. I am wide but short and I can sleep almost anywhere so that may have something to do with it.

    I almost hate to say this, but remember how I (5') used say the my SB Classic was "cavernous" and I called it the Taj Mahal? And that I felt there was a lot of wasted fabric for a short person?

    Well, I have the SBLH now and have only used it on the deck with the Vario stand but it doesn't feel as wide, even tho Dale said the width is the same. I guess you need the full length in order for the width to widen out

    Also, the net isn't as far enough away from my face.

    I ordered those little rods from Harbor Freight (someone posted a photo) and am going to play around as soon as the weather gets cooler.

    Well I bought Rip Waverly's modded SB, I've hung in it once and it was reasonably comfy for those few minutes. It definitely needs an overnight and side by side with the BB. I'll get a review and specs up maybe sometime this week.

    yeah.. give it an overnight.
    most noticeable was the lack of any sort of calf ridge- even laying on the center line. easy to toss n' turn all night if that's your style.

    i moved 'down' to a SBLH- i hope i get the same comfort in that kayak as i did in the canoe.
