Slowhike asks :
It swivels very slightly, I would estimate five degrees. It causes one to feel the central cord raise.
How does it act when one person gets up & the other stays?
Thanks! The "wall is about as high as the thickness of the pads- between 2" and 3" is my guess. We are on thick Warmlite DAMs inflated pretty firmly.
looks like it works very well. how tall is the wall between 2 people? what are you guys laying on?
Yes, there is an angle between the head spreader bars orientation, and it gives a bit of wiggle room when hammock occupants are changing positions. But when this design has been finalized, that spreader bar angle will not vary. The two apexes are a fixed distance apart approximately four feet right now. Adjusting this distance has a direct effect on the tension of the lateral edges in relationship to the tension of the central cord. I am going to add about two inches from this length next time I try it to loosen the central cord slightly.
looks like the head spreader bars are not "straight" end to end, there's an angle between them, can it vary, like if the trees were closer together or farther apart?
Yeah, I don't believe any more that a double hammock would ever be stable between only two trees, especially when one person gets up.
so you're using 2 trees at the head end, are you using use 3 suspension triangles as well, 1 at the foot end and 2 at the head end?
I know it is different, hard to describe exactly how at this early stage. But it is kind of like the first time you slept asym on a gathered end hammock is different.
really great looking design, how does it feel, any different than a single?
Thanks a lot Grizz! I am glad to hear you have plans for something similar. Let me know if I can clarify any design aspects that might contribute to your design process.
outstanding! Working on a double hammock to get Mrs Grizz in the air too is a project I'd pegged for next year....this will make it sooo much easier...thanks for sharing
