I'm looking to make a new tarp for my Bridge Hammock, and I'm curious what dimensions other folks find 'big enough'. It seems like bridge hammocks typically need a bit wider footprint than gathered end hammocks because of the spreader bar. I tried a 9'x11' tarp and punched a hole with the end of the spreader bar
In the summer I'd just pitch the tarp at a shallower angle, but in the winter I'd really like to get the sides of the tarp nice and low to the ground. How big should I aim for?
