Has anyone ever tried making a hammock that has 4 supporting straps on all four corners. I was thinking it might give you more room at the head and foot ends since the fabric wouldn't gather together like in a traditional hammock. You could even tie each end to a separate tree to get even more spread if you wanted to.
I found a picture that represents this. Scroll down to the second to last picture, the red and blue hammock with multiple "occupants".
