BTW, happy Thanksgiving.
I hung my diy gathered end hammock w structural ridgeline this weekend. Usually, when I lay banana style I sink in the middle and the sides pull up high and taught. Yesterday that's exactly what happened
Today the middle was taught and the sides were loose and floppy. It was like laying on a 2x4. I had not changed anything. My ridgeline is adjustable. It had not changed, but I adjusted it and even took it off w no change.
I hung my other identical hammock and it was the same thing. The middle was hard and tight the sides loose and floppy. If I lay diagonal I was fine, but banana style was very different
