    now just to make set up easier you could make some snake skins for that little ol' tarp.

    What is the spacing for the panel pull tie-outs along the bottom?[/QUOTE]


    Yo, I never actualy measured with a tape measure as such. I think they came out at 76 cm afterwards. But after I got the ridgeline in it I set it up and tryed differet lenghts of the pannels with the thought that when I had it closed up I still had enough room to be in the hammock. and thats how I got their lenght

    Yeah eh Golfer
    Might have to look into some snake skins, but I think its the side pulls first.

    That's a really heavy stuffsack How much does the tarp weigh?

    All kidding aside just wanted to say it looks great!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Got the side pulls on

    Thanks to everyone who suggested side pulls. They are a great addition. Gives me heaps more room on the inside. Got some proto type guy ropes on it to see how it looks. once again very pleased.

    Nice job. I like the green color. The side pull outs seem to allow for loads of room underneath.

    Nice Tarp

    Good work! What are the dimensions of the cut pieces? Does the seam run along with the ridgeline? I'm looking into making one about this size. I worry about the seam down the ridgeline, but I believe the sil I have is only 64" wide. So no matter what I would have to connect two pieces together in order to make one this size. Does sil come in wider rolls, or does anyone have any ideas?

    Beautiful tarp. Have you sealed the seams and tie-out attachment points? And this is a dumb question, but I just have to ask: this fabric is waterproof, isn't it? Silicone or polyurethane?
