I just finished making 2 double layer tablecloth hammocks. I used double sheet bends with Amsteel loops. I'm still back and forth on Atlas straps, whoopee slings, or ring buckle for suspension. I know I want to have an adjustable ridgeline. Still new to hanging and with the way I procrastinate I'll be much happier being able to make adjustments as needed rather than picking a length.
It may seem like a newbie question, but what I really need are some ideas on how to attach the ridgeline. I'm going to make it out of some 1/8" Amsteel I have. Thinking I'll do a fixed loop on one end and make the other adjustable. Pretty much like a whoopie sling.
Should the ARL attach to the fold in the sheet bend or to the Amsteel loop? I could also larks head another Amsteel loop just under the sheet bend on both end, then clip a biner attached to each end of the ARL to the loops.
What am I missing? Just concerned about the different forces on the sheet bend and also being able to make adjustments if the ARL runs through the bend or around the sheet bend loop.
Thanks in advance.
