Re: Catenary Modification
- If you ever modify the ridgeline, you would use waaaayyyyy less curve
on it. I would use 2" on the ridgeline, if any.

- I used half the sag in my ridgeline on my last tarp, 5 inches over
10 feet instead of 10 inches over 10 feet. I used 10 on my first
tarp but it really cut into the headroom, so I halved(?) it on my
last one. I can get a much more stable set up with the full cat cut
but the half works for a very taught pitch as well. Better than not
having one but not as good as the full cat either. It really makes a
difference in the headroom tho and the tarp tensioners do a great
job of sucking up the slack.
