    Well, I have been running a CRL under my Noah 12, now I have got to try it over and see if I like that better....seems to be a popular way to hang the tarp.

    Summer - CRL running over the tarp to help prevent water running down the line and dripping in the hammock.

    Winter - CRL running under the tarp as I think it will help support it better when snow weight could be an issue.

    Never had a specific issue with either scenario, so it is mostly done to make me feel better about it so far.

    I've been running a CRL under attaching with prussiks. I've been playing with pole mods and an inner prussik allows an attachment point without the need to sew a tab on the tarp.
    Another idea I want to try with my rotated HH Hex is to add two tie-out points and attach them with a short pole segment laying on top of an over tarp ridgeline. Sorta the way some tents do.

    My approach also ... FWIW there is less cord and thus less weight in this approach.

    On a cuben tarp a full ridge line probably helps keep tension off the taped seam

    Both work well. It's just a matter-of-preference.
    I like big hammocks - I cannot like.

    I'm not convinced that a cuben tarp requires a continuous ridge line. I used to have a cuben sail on my J/24 sailboat and it had basic sewn seams and I never had any issues racing it in strong winds. I'm using a line on each end of the ridgeline on my current cuben tarp.

    i'm sold on the full ridgeline, either over or under don't matter.

    it makes everything very easy. you can string the ridgeline, while keeping the tarp in a stuff sack skewered to the line at one end. hillbilly snakeskins essentially.

    utilize prussiks to set tarp position over the hammock. doing so, you can tie the tarp out, and then stuff it back into the stuff sack hanging on the line. now, you're all set up and staked out, tarp is ready to deploy, but out of view.


    i've tried a multitude of setups. i find this to be the most convenient. it also "babies" the tarp by keeping it off rocky / muddy / crudgy ground.

    I'm with rip. Plus,

    I usually put my tarp up last unless it's raining. Then of course it's first.
    RL goes up, then hammock, then I unstuff my down and hang them over the RL to start expanding. SB, UQ, coat all go on the RL.

    Then I usually go thru the pack and get the stuff needed for dinner. Yada yada yada.

    The tarp goes up last and some times not at all. Love looking at the stars.
