Thanks for the feedback - Hammock length is 125", and ridgeline is sitting around 104" right now.
Sewing the bugscreen on, and fiddling around with the shelf depth. What is a typical or original WBBB shelf depth?
Also, how taunt are your tie down on the side, and at what angle (close to the hammock, or farther out? As I am trying to pin the netting down... I am finding quite hard.
I use a 12'' piece of bungee between the tie outs and a single 6' bungee tie to that to the ground. As for angle, I'm really not consistent with a length. I just marlin spike hitch around my steak stretch it out and stab the ground.
Just curious, what is the intent behind using double layers of 1.1 instead of a single layer of say 1.9?
Is it to leave a space for pad insertion?
I believe the double layer is also better for bug protection. Some of them pesky things will bite right thru a single layer.
Anyone have weights for their DIY WBBB clones?
Mine is made of a single layer of polyester taffeta from Hancock fabric. Don't know the fabric weight.
It is a bit long at 122" raw length by 60" wide
Heavier than I expected at a whopping 39.1 oz or 1108.2 grams (including stuff sack, whoopies, ridgeline organizer and a 0.54oz led flashlight I leave in the hammock)
I nearly fell over when i saw the weight.

I just finished pinning the bugnet on my first one. Once I cut it this weekend I will weight it with everything in the stuff sack.
