Ridgelines, cinch buckles & more questions
Ok, I have my hammock strung, now I need to work out a bugnet, & that means a ridgeline. If I decided to use a structural ridgeline, would I tie these off to the cinch buckles? With a structural ridgeline, would that not be putting a huge amount of force into the buckles & the line that makes the ridge? I am afriad that if I went hat route, there would be a point of failure in thte buckles or in the climbing rope I use... it is rated for 1800 lbs, but knots weaken that, correct? At 250ish lbs, I am afraid I would "break" my hammock.
