I got some of that woodland pattern sil-nylon 1.1 from LightHeart Gear. I made a 6'x10' tarp for my son that came in at 11.47 ounces with lines. I still need to seam seal it.

It is VERY waterproof in tests I did with the material prior to sewing it. This is some custom stuff they got made, and you can get it for $14.95 a yard here: http://www.lightheartgear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=46

I found that it was about 1.53 ounces a yard for a finished project.

How far you have them posts set Rock? And whats their diameter? And how far below grade are they?

Oh, we had a whole thread about that...

They are 5" diameter posts that were drilled in 3' each (I think). More details: http://hikinghq.net/forum/showthread.php?7327-Hammock-Lab-construction-advice&p=302775#post302775 for the dimensions of the post lengths and such.

I remembered it, just couldnt find it, thanks! That being said... I see you did it as a 'lab.' If you were just going to have 2 posts for say, an ENO for lounging around in, at what distance would you set the posts?

12'-15' I would think. I'm drinking now so don't trust me.

We should all save that last line for future use.
