Today after work I quickly finished my hammock, gathered one end, pulling the edges out about 3 inches, and tied the other end. My question is this, my sides are really high so I take it I made it too wide, its very comfortable to lay in on the diagonal, very flat, lots of feet and head room, weighs in with the complete suspension at 16 1/2 ounces, made from 1.9. Can I remove some of the width to reduce the amount of depth?. I like this idea about being able to tinker with this without completely destroying it. Actually the wife just tole me she wants one also for the back yard for her too.
