Mac Cat or JRB 10 x 11 Cat?
I have noticed that my oversize Mac Cat, a Deluxe with two extra feet of length, giving me a 14 foot ridgeline still does not give me the coverage I would like to have due to the extreme narrowing of the tarp on the ends. The cat cuts come way in to meet the bottom cat cut. The JRB 10 x 11 is more square on the ends. Does anyone have both a deluxe and a 10 x 11 and would care to comment on the coverage.
I wish the hammock hut was larger enough for the BMB!
what's the distance between corner tie-outs along the bottom edge of the long MacCat?
Looks like 84 inches between the outside edges of the D-rings. Mule

seems to work on a bmbh pretty good. it is 11x10 total. I sold my Maccat standard because of the exaggerated side cuts. Finding a tarp for the bmbh seemed to be a task, without carrying a 2lb tarp I chose to make my own that works on this diy bridge: (i was actually going to sell the tarp, since i wont use it much)
it would appear to me that a 7' side width is a little small on a bmbh especially. do you think 9' would work for you?
in the second pic you can see the spreader bars, which under weight, will not touch the hammock (or you could hang the tarp from its own suspension )
Probably. That's a nice looking tarp.

He is going to put an extra D ring on the bottom 9 foot sides, so there will be three stakes per side instead of four. Is this a cool tarp for a bridge? Here is a drawing of my 14 foot mac cat. OOOOOHHHhhh Yeeeeeeeeh! Mule
