    Lil' red tarp.......

    Had a go at making a tarp & undercover to suit my Tarseer hammock.....

    Learnings......Darn, that sil-nylon is a slippery sucker ! Pin it & then pin it some more.
    ......Take your time & don't get all exited & rush when your nearing completion.
    ......Details, it's all in those little details.

    Makes you appreciate what actually goes into making a tarp.......and mine was a straight sided easy design !
    Challenging, fun & frustrating, all at the same time !

    Backyard trials.....sealed the seams with spray on silicon, let it dry, then squirted it with the garden hose.
    No leaks...looks promising.



    Then....to the bush, for some real testing.





    The 'Lil Red Tarp' club is well & truly opened.
