No, each side is 42" long, so the tarp is 10.5'x 7'. The hexagon shape
combined with the catenary curves makes for a very efficient use of
material and allows for a very taught pitch.

So you are saying it usually 42" x 130" which is basically a
3.5'x10.5'? How does the 3.5' part work? That doens't seem like
much coverage at all.
