Gathered end hammock construction for a big dude.
I've been going through the search and only found a couple references to this being done, and they were a couple years or more old.
Basically, I'm looking to build my own, first hammock (because I like the DIY approach to things). I'm 5'10" and 300lbs, but losing weight thankfully - down 20lbs!
Anyway, I was thinking... And I'm somewhat clueless to this, but, 1.7 ripstop, doubled - would that work?
Should I be using heavy duty dyneema cordage or should I go for webbing?
Can I get some supplier links for places to get nylon (craft/Joann stores are a hike for me, I live in the boonies)?
Am I asking too many or the wrong questions? lol
