    I have done this with a 59" fabric, it was too narrow IMO.

    Almost as good as seamless:



    Solid piece for the top and seams on the side.

    Sorry, maybe I'm a little over sensative right now. I just felt like it was an abrupt end to the thread.

    SnrMoment excellent idea! And is the tarp in picture yours? And does it work good without unknown problems?

    I agree. No rudeness intended. I just saw it as a "Well there you go. Answered. Thank you."

    Edit... Never mind... somehow my post was delayed by several hours and now meaningless

    There's another factor can contribute: seams generally work fine. We hear about difficulties sealing them or sewing them, but I think these are exceptions. For the amount of thought and effort they require they are are useful options in tarp design. Moreover, when it comes to cuben fiber tarps they are stellar features - no need to seal them, and they increase the strength of the tarp rather than degrading it slightly, as some sewn seams can do.

    I think the real question should be "why doesn't RSBTR order even wider rolls, especially knowing who their core customers are"

    Although, I've gotta say seeing that center-line seam over my head, I know exactly which lines need more tensioning by comparing it with my ridgeline

    Probably due to what the mill can produce. They can probably weave wider fabric but the coating process has limitations would be my guess. That and the xl sli they have is $10 a yard. Which is 5 bucks more for 8 to 10 inches more fabric.

    I recently made an asm tarp out of 4 yards of fabric cut in half with a seam down the long edge. I was disappointed by the pucker down the RL created by stretching the fabric on the diagonal. It will work, but I do not think that pucker can go away.

    Yes, the tarp is mine. It's my go to rig on the trail. Similar to the Tadpole in size & shape. It's an artful piece of work I bought from one of the inmates here (Streamline).
