    If anyone is interested in making one, I will upload photos of it and instructions how to make it as soon as I have everything ready. I think I got the measurements right, it works well over my hammock. I am going to make one a little wider next time I think.

    What is the overall width? 26 in. X 4 = 104, or 10' as shown?

    Review the dimensions again.....width dimensions are 2' 6" not 26". So the 10' is correct.

    Please pardon my eyesight, I never think to enlarge, and never remember that I need to.

    Thanks, and eagerly awaiting the plans and pics, looks very interesting.

    Well I should have followed my own measurements, I made one slightly more narrowed than the dimensions of the plan and it is not as nice as I would have liked. It works but I think it would have been better if I had stuck to the plans. I am going to make another one and try to document the process.

    The tarp works well enough, but I am going to only use webbing loops from now on with triangle reinforcement instead of grommets. The grommets just do not hold up very well. Tarp size is nice when the dimensions match the diagram. I am going to make the next one out of 1.5 nylon and do the silicone treatment myself. I also think I will cut it out with a soldering gun so I don't have to hem the edges.
