I took the King Crimson tarp to the Pine Barrens this weekend, but alas, no rain. So I hung it in the backyard to test in today's afternoon thunderstorms. Soon as the rain came, the tarp started sagging so I had to add shock cord tensioners (never used them before 'cause I've never had a silnylon tarp).
That's the Little Red Rooster matching tablecloth hammock. Together, I call them the Crimson Bordello.
Here's what it looks like when a one-eyed man tries to sew straight lines. Tie-out reinforcements were made with 7/8 grosgrain; tie-outs with 5/8 grosgrain using Dutch Titanium D-Rings.
There was a nick in the fabric near the ridgeline so I sewed and seam-sealed 3" x 7" patches on both sides and seam-sealed them.
