Can and has the drawing numbered 3825 on page 589 in THE ASHLEY BOOK OF KNOTS been done in real life?
I keep thinking about the proportions of the things in the drawing. Are the oars super long and the people super short?
Hanging hammocks from a tripod like that does seem like a good idea for many places.
What if you cover it and make a hammock tee-pee
What other make shift hammock stands are there that don't require trees?
