Long Ogee Batwing tarp done!

After ordering 6 yards of 58″ wide fabric and 3/4″ crosgrain webbing from [url]www.ripstopbytheroll.com[/url] ; I went and made a longer/larger version of the Ogee Batwing tarp! Took me several hours of cutting, and then sewing the hems and attaching tie outs, but I think the end result is pretty decent! I received 18 feet 8 inches of fabric, so that allowed me a little more latitude for the ridge line length and overall width…

Specs are as follows;

1.1 Oz Khaki Silnylon, 6 yards

16 tie outs of 3/4″ crosgrain webbing, sewn to hems with straight stitches, 4 lines minimum, some tie outs are X-in-box attached (corners and ridgeline tie outs)

overall length, roughly 18 feet 4 inches, width, roughly 11 feet 4 inches

Set up with poles, I set it up first with one triangle staked down, then the poles, then the final triangle staked down, and then attached guy lines to open up the ends and stake the doors down. In a camping situation, I would start with ridgeline first, and tension it as much as possible, before staking the sides down.

Amazingly, the entire tarp all fits into this 4.5″x4.5″x3″ shotgun ammo pouch, also made by me!  No guylines and no stakes, those would travel in a different pouch.
