Awesome! That looks great. Thanks for posting up.
I haven't done mine yet, but will when I unroll mine in a month or so. I had just measured mine when I rolled them up last fall.
What size raft? I see in the cooler thread you might also have a 156R. Was my 40' dimension for a 156R correct?

I've run 5/8 rope for 10 years, and only more recently started paddle rafting. Pretty easy for front paddlers to bark their knuckles on the rope. For that reason more than any other, I'm going to try 1" webbing this season.

No problems grabbing it when it's that tight, then?
Lhowemt, I have some extra 1" strapworks cam buckles if you need one or two and don't have any trashed straps for donors.
