Question Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

When I did this the tarp wasn't attached to the frame. It was attached to the toerail with cord and/or bungees, just using the frame for support. That is the advantage of this as there is less strain on the tarp. When the tarp is just over the boom as many do it has to be tight and wears out a lot faster.
