I can add/release tension plus adjust location of the tarp along the CRL using the soft shackles attached at each end of the ridge seam that are prussiced to the CRL. So I can pull it as tight as if I was not using a CRL. Clear as mud? If a picture would help I will post one.
I like the CRL for hanging stuff from but it certainly is not necessary.
Several Dutchified things are on my list to try.
Had to go out and play thanks to this and many other threads.

There you are.
Thanks bamabert. I do understand your set up on the crl. I assumed this would be the best way to hang it as well but Brandon from Warbonnet said it was best to hang it the other way. Maybe because even though you can pull it tight with your soft shackles it might not be the same as having some of the load on the crl vs all of the load on the seam of the tarp? Chew.
Let's see if we can get Brandon to clarify.
Brandon, what about the SF ridge seam benefits from having it tied at both ends and pulled taught versus using a CRL?
Look at that cute gear hammock. Looks like a step for all the animals to climb up and peak in at you!

That looks very similar to my hammock setup. My poles are bamboo though.
