I recently purchased a tarp (against my will) and need to ask for advice regarding rigging. Do tarp users bring bulk rope or pre-cut stuff? I have pre-cut some 2mm perlon at 50', 36' & 18' lengths as well as 2' lengths tied into loops. My plan is to bury small pieces of driftwood in the sand and use the tie-offs to anchor the tarp. I assume regular tent pegs are nearly useless in sand even when buried deep in the sand. I also plan to use the boat to anchor part of the tarp but I still need a sand anchor that can easily be rigged. I would prefer to avoid burying small stuff sacks if possible.
Are there any of us that use tarps regularly and can offer some advice for anchoring the tarp on a beach or rocky ledge?
Thanks in advance
