    tarp pullout question

    I am making a 11' x 10' tarp with doors. The sidewalls will be about 10'6". Should I put one pullout in the middle of each side or two pullouts per side. I have an 11' tarp with one pullout per side and it works ok. Will 2 give me alot more room. Will 2 split the stress? What do you think?

    IMO, two will give you more "interior" room AND will spread out the stress from a sideways wind. The downside is more weight and a bit more rigging time.
