    quickly tarp stitching question.

    My tarp has a center seam from corner to corner. It is folded over on itself for each sheet and then double stitched...

    So should I string the tarp so jat seam is essentially my ridge? ( I use a split ridge tarp suspension)

    Or should I run it so the seam goes up and over?

    Essentially one way the tension is going with the direction of the stitching. The other method is perpendicular....

    The stitched line should be your ridgeline.

    I agree with MAD777 and according to the picture below...

    ...boulderv7 also seems to agree that the seam becomes your tarp ridge line.
    I'm so far behind I think I'm in the lead!
