    Thank you Bluefin. I just hope that some people can use the plans I posted. I have gained so much knowledge over the past year and want to give back where I can.

    I do wish the plans were more detailed, but I do so much in my head versus paper that it gets away from me. It's somewhere to start from thought.

    Nice looking tarp. I like the two color. And my colors of choice! Good job.

    The color combination I think would be great for stealth applications. When you got about 50 yards away it really started to blend into the background.

    Nice tarp, streamline! I made one almost identical to yours about 3 months ago. I used maroon for the top/middle portion and black for the sides. It matches the colors of my ENO double. Will have to put it up and get the camera out to take some pics... I'm somewhat surprised we haven't seen more of this design--especially since it does away with any seam over the ridgeline (which equals no opportunity for leaky seams from above). Again, you did good.

    I think I'm the contented buyer of this successful first effort of Streamline's.

    If he claims in his second post of this thread that he's only with his latest two-tone tarp sewing straight lines, it is only because he's measuring variations in fractions of mm while the rest of us measure in fractions of inches. Yeah, the ridgeline straps on this one are a little husky. But, generous Glowire,prusiks, etc add 3 ounces. If an especially fat squirrel wants to perch on one of the 1/16oz- heavy stubs, I'll thank him to leave no skat and not walk on the seam-sealed ridge line, either.

    Yep that is the baby I sold you. I loved that tarp, glad I sold it though. I love my new one. But again, I kept the template for the one DemostiX got from me. I became emotionally attached
