A couple of quick questions about an adjustable/detachable ridgeline for my new Blackbird --

The adjustable end of the ridgeline whoopie doesn't go through the channel of the gathered end, does it? I didn't think so, but wanted to be sure. I was picturing a short section with two fixed eyes -- one through the gathered end to connect to the rest of the hammock suspension and the second eye to grab the whoopie and allow it room to adjust. Or I could just connect the fixed eye and the ridgeline whoopie with a microbiner to make it not only adjustable, but detachable. Am I on the right path here??

Also, is 1.75 mm okay for the ridgeline or should I go with 7/64 Amsteel?
