Tarps For Bigger Bridges

#1

Most bridges need a larger/longer tarp for complete coverage. An 11ft will cover the body of most bridges , but leave part of the triangles in the weather causing rain water to drip down onto the bridge. Much of this can be stopped with drip strips, but blowing rain can soak your bridge quickly. An inexpensive option is to use a breathable water resistant cover on the bottom of your hammock/bridge called an under cover.

Or you can use a longer tarp. 12ft is now becoming a standard in some circles and 13-14 ft tarps are not uncommon. With the new lightweight fabrics, a big tarp doesn't have to be heavy. 16-17oz (without lines) for a 12 ft long, 9ft 10in wide tarp is a reality.

That orange and purple one looks familiar. You do great work. Can't wait to get them together and setup.
