    I had a great visit with Marty and company, as usual.
    Wilderness Logics will be starting a line of rectangular tarps with 10', 11' and 12' ridge lines.
    The lower edge of each side will have 4 stake out points with a cat cut between ea stake out.
    There will be 2 pull outs per side.
    Marty said that he has had several requests for rectangular tarps so he decided to put one on the drawing board.
    The proto was being sewn while I was there and so all I got to see was the drawings.

    I think the additional corner coverage will add a good amount of storm coverage.
    It may lend it's corners to be tied back to the pull outs and staked in a traditional hex mode.
    From that hex mode the corners can be staked inward, forming a semi-door-like wings to help fend off blowing rain or wind.

    My work schedule will make it impossible to get back over to help try out different set ups but I'll keep ya posted on further developments.
    Bottom line is...Cool looking design and I want one!

    Lol. I posted my pic in the wrong thread. Multitasking is to blame.

    I had a blast this afternoon...Marty came over about 5:00ish and had the proto of the new 10x10 tarp. I don't know the weight, we where just playing and having fun with it.

    This 1st tarp had 3 stake out points with minimal cat cut between them. They worked well.
    We played around with several ideas and the master is taking some of them to the drawing board and they will be tested soon.

    This is a really cool tarp. When pitched it provided 60ish sq.ft. of coverage.
    That's a lot of room to do stuff and more space to lay gear than my hex tarps.
    The 1st thing came to mind was that the additional room may provide a little more coverage for hammocks with spreader bars like my LO with the Slowhike mod.(spreader bar at the head end). And perhaps bridge hammocks?

    Marty and I sat under it for about an hour, enjoying the shade and "what if-ing". Even in this proto, the quality workmanship and perfectly accurate stitching is world class!

    After a few tweaks and a little more testing this will be an awesome configuration for a tarp and I'm definitely going to buy one. This may be the closest thing to an all around tarp that I have ever used.

    The extra usable room for lolly gagging will allow 5 or 6 folks to sit around and plan the next days agenda. 2 hammocks could fit easily under this tarp if the trees would allow. Who knew a square tarp would be so cool?

    I guess it will be a couple of days before it hits production.

    Our of curiosity, would you prefer 3 or 4 stake out points per side?

    I would go with 4. But where would the 4th one go?
    It would give me a little more confidence when cought in a nasty storm.

    prob the current middle would go away and have a stake out directly below each of the side pull outs. so that the tarp could be staked out like a hex with short doors. or as a square.
