• You got it. Sounds like you already know it, but you can get the exact diagonal by calculating the square root of the sum of the square of both sides (which

You got it. Sounds like you already know it, but you can get the exact
diagonal by calculating the square root of the sum of the square of
both sides (which comes out to 10.735 in this case).

I've used the Equinox Poncho Tarp with Extension over a HH with good
results. I'm getting a HH Cat Tarp because I've come to realize, for

savings is great, though! I posted pics under "HH with Poncho Tarp."

58" x 114"
127.9" diagonal

After I get the MacCat Tarp, I think I'll try using the poncho as a
