I had some extra 1.5 oz spinnaker cloth laying around so I made a quick hammock out it. I am currently relaxing in it and I have to say that in the conditions I am using it in, it is rather nice. It is windy (blowing about 15 knots)and cool (56 degrees). The natural ablity of the cloth to block the wind is greatly appreciated right now. The dimensions of the hammock are 134 inches by 61 inches. The edges came finished so no need to hem the sides. All in all extremely comfortable. Equally with my body weight in it, it is not noisy at all. I was a bit worried about that.
