    Cat-Cut Formula?

    For all you DIY tarp makers out there -
    How do you determine how deep your cat-cut is?
    Is there a formula?
    Is the curve radial or parabolic?

    I'm trying to come up with my own version of the Honeymoon tarp that'll need a minimal flap at the wide end.

    Here's the most recent thread about cat-cuts where a spreadsheet is used to plot the curve.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    I think Mad777 made a spreadsheet for the calculations too.
