Inspecting crossports Can't Post

I was just reading on http://www.noexcusesrigging.com....

During inspections prudent riggers pull the ribs over their heads to directly inspect rib seams and crossports.

I got a chuckle just thinking about my rigger with his head up my cells.

I would even pay money to see that! (just not a lot of money)

Vic is the MAN!

If he goes over your rig, you know it's good.

All the work he's ever done for me has been really 1st class and I don't doubt he looked inside my cells.

After all, I did give $$ for it.

If your rigger won't do, it who will?

I found a canopysizing chart from the same site and there are some interesting things they are listing :

For example :

Volume Area Source

SABRE 170 397 171 PIA
Sabre 170 451 179 Para Gear


But then again :

Volume Area Source

SABRE 150 398 159 PIA
Sabre 150 413 159 Para Gear


Why is there such a difference in the measurements done by PIA and Paragear in the 170 and a lot smaller difference in the measurements of the 150 ??


Also :
Volume Area Source


Spectre 107 296 99 Para Gear
Spectre 120 321 135 Para Gear


WTF is that ??

Does that mean a 107 Spectre is actually 36sqft smaller than the 120 ??

Larry - I'll put my head up your cells, but it stops there, okay Dude!

(Well unless I get dinner and flowers - but you'd better call me dammit!) - by the way - I thought I'd found you a container, but that reserve won't fit in it, sorry bud!
