    How far down, away from the ridgeline were the new pull outs placed.

    I'm about to make a 10'x ~8' tarp and will be adding pull outs. Just trying to learn from those who have done it before.

    I tried 18" from ridgeline 5' centered but they were too high, I ended up with 22" away from ridgeline.

    But, your tarp dimensions are smaller so maybe 18" might work for you.

    I just sewed them at 20" so I split the difference. We'll see tomorrow how it ends up. Thanks, BodhiKnight.

    Hey BK! Great looking tarp. How deep did you go on the cat cut between the tieouts?

    Cheers

    The pull outs worked great at that height, but should have been a little closer together horizontally.

    Thanks Callahan!

    The cat cut is 6.5" at the widest part of the curve.
