My MYOG tarp
This is my spinnaker tarp, I am posting this so people can see what's achievable for an hours work and less than ten quids worth of materials. You could spend more time and more money and have a better finished product but I am cheap individual and inpatient too
The material is spinnaker and cost me £5 ish including postage for a 2.2m X1.5m sheet.
The weight shown includes six pegs, 4 guys, bag, and the home made extend-able pole.
A trailstar it aint, but I'm happy enough with it, just need to use the bugger now.
Just to be clear how rough it is, I'm not trying to claim it's a masterpiece, plus I like to use the word tripe where possible even if it's not particularly relevant.
Sorry for any incongruity.
Is that a walking pole leaning against the radiator?
If so, why not use that instead of custom made extendable pole?
The tarp looks good
Great for that cost, Simo.
I used a similar set up in some pretty rough conditions. You may find you'll need a few more staking points to keep it on the ground.
