So I took the plunge and bought 3 tablecloths for me and my boys. I am planning a troop meeting to show the scouts and get them into this. What size rope does everyone use to whip the ends of the hammock? I used some thin paracord like stuff but I am afraid it is too thin to really hold against the whoopie. I can use regular 550 paracord but wanted to get some feedback first.
Speaking of whoopie's... Can anyone tell me why the bury on the locked brommel end needs to be 5 inches long?
