Well, it took me a day and a half but my Cat Tarpis done. It is 1.1 ounce sil Nylon and Measures 8 foot six inches bye ten foot six. I Cantenary cut the edges,but not center ridge seam. It pitches well flat lean to style or a frame style. Here are the pictures. http://s1116.photobucket.com/albums/k573/zimraphail/
Just a hair under a pound. I reinfoced corners and guyline areas with scraps of cordura. picked up a ounce or two there. I figure it will last longer? I can use Hammock under it yes,but primarily for smokies trip with my son to cook under. Hopefully will give us some extra protection if it gets nasty. I dont want to cook under hammock tarp,as areas we are staying are under a heavy bear allert. I dont plan to be a snack!

Nice job. I've made two cat-cut tarps and love them.
If you haven't already done so (can't tell from the pictures), you may want to add some pockets at the tie outs to stuff the guy-lines into. I used some mosquito netting and it works great. On the open edge there is omnitape to be able to seal the pocket. I do a quick 'hank' of the cord and fold it into the pocket. It keeps it neat and clean.
If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you can't. Either way, you're right.
