When whipping or tying a hammock?
Someone wrote in a post that he did not pull material out to hold the sides up when he tied or whipped the ends of his hammocks. I thought that was a good idea so I made one today and left the fabric straight on the ends when I tied them. I like what I got. I can roll in and out easily and see all around me, especially with the tie outs.
My question is: how many of you pull the last four inches or so out of the tied ends, and if you don't, what are your reasons and observations?
Here are a few pictures of it. Tonight I will make a weather cover for the top of the hammock as well as a bug net to match. The hammock is THREE bottomed, all DWR and weighs 24 ounces. Why 3 bottomed? I have been experimenting with pads lately and I have an idea to stack pads in two pockets in such a way that the entire bottom of the hammock will end up insulated....I hope.
Pictures with weather cover
Here are some pictures of the hammock with the weather cover for the top. Thanks to all of you for inspiring me to make one of these, yours all look so cool. Had to make one like them. Mule
