    Useable width of Ed's 67" Sil?

    I'm about to begin making a BlackCat tarp, but I only have half the sil I need. I ordered the other half from Ed at Speer Hammocks, but I want to get started with the material I have in the meantime. So...

    Is the dark gray 67" sil exactly 67" wide including the unusable frayed factory edges? If so I'll have to cut it down an inch or so on each side to eliminate the edge, so I need to take that into account now.

    Anyone who has ordered this Sil from Ed, let me know! Thanks.

    Give Ed a call, I'm sure he could tell you exactly. Ed is a great guy and always helpful with all of my questions.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Duh, I don't know why I didn't think of that. Thanks. I could have also just measured one of my other pieces of sil. I miss the simple things sometimes.

    For those of you taking notes at home, there would be 65.5" to 66" usable after cutting off the frayed edges.
