In the picture above, you can see how well it works pitched as a diamond. But if you try to raise those sides for a larger coverage area, you will struggle with floppy sides. It has to do with the catenary cut of the tarp. It's a well made, sturdy, and light weight tarp for a great price, but mine drove me & my friends crazy. I had Marty at Wilderness Logics make me a custom 12X15 green river tarp and I love it. More $$$ than a Noah, but worth every penny.
I like my Noah 16 - can't touch it for the price. I like using two poles and two oars and end up with kind of an origami crane looking configuration. It gives a lot more covered space than the diamond, rigs tightly, and drains very well. I agree that it doesn't create the deepest shade, but it works alright.

I like the fishing set up for sure, nice and clean keeping the rope out of the way...

I need to put together about a grand and come over and camp at your house so we can work on eliminating some of the 28 lopro's my rig has. That frame just looks light.

I know it's more bends and more complication but think about droping the rear frame stays down under the tube line - it's soooo much nicer to get in/out of the boat. It's probably not for everyone but it's my single favorite attribute of my frame.

This is what I did - and what I need to eventually fab with just two lopros...

Just took my 14 foot Ocelot through the Gates of Lodore section of the Green for the first time. Handled pretty good. Gear and passenger on a small boat made for a fun ride. I swear the umbrella isn't always up.

This fly is 24'x18'. It has cams on the corners with heavy duty metal rings that slide right over the oar handles. It is super easy to set up and keep tight. Also comes with nice sand stakes. To me it is very much worth the cost n

Any time elk. Could start in the back and work that section first. Fishing has been killer out this way. Come on out

Scuff the pipe up a little bit. Clean with loc-tite clean and prime or alcohol (I prefer pendleton, drink what is left over) , then use red or blue loc-tite on pipe and towers. Towers will not move, if you doubt the blue or red then by all means try the green. What ever flavor you use you WILL need heat to break the union.

Thanks spider - It was mostly a wistful thought... but I'd like to lighten her up eventually. Maybe we can put that fall main cast and blast together... That idea really floats my boat and all my other trips have fizzled out this year - it's just been day trips and I'm jonesing to wake up with a hang over near a river.
