Seems like the more I try to feed the piggy bank for all these projects I want to try, the hungrier it gets !
I just finished modifying my first tarp with a Garlington Tarp Hood as I described in post 23 http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...p?t=456&page=3.
I think it should give quite a bit of additional rain protection on the ends of a shorter tarp. It’s nothing more than 2 isosceles triangles sewn to the edge of the tarp on one edge and velcro’d together on the short edge with 2 small loops, to tie it off, at the bottom of the Velcro. The Velcro slit allows the hammock strap or rope to pass through. In better weather you just tie it up out of the way using the small strips of grosgrain ribbon. I took several shots of it today.

Very cool Stoikurt!
Now that would be mighty nice to have during some nasty weather.
Great job. Thanks for posting the photos.
great job really pro like .
Bear bait what??? Your It!!!!!!!!
looks good. a lot like the raw way style tarp i used for quite a while, but the velcro is an improvement. that would allow you to bring the tarp down just over the hammock in really bad weather. good job.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
Cool idea. There was talk on WB with adding something like this to a ground tarp. People where thinking about making them work as part of their rain gear to save weight. Might work for a pack cover too.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
The hanger formly known as "hammock engineer".
That looks great. May have to add those to mine.
Thanks, Guys, now I have confidence to use up the pieces I cut off the ripstop when I made the ML no-seam asym diamond tarp last week; cut two triangles off of 4 yds of 60" fabric, then split them on the perpendicular- and have matching pairs of triangles to now add back on as hoods!how efficient use of fabric is that?
(Pics may follow- If I can ever figure how to get them from my camera to my hdrive to the gallery.. haven't quite found those directions yet..)
Thanks again! Betsy
