I am disappointed with my HH that I really can't sit in it as a chair because of the ridgeline hitting me in the head. After reading the forums, I have seen that many of you have cut it and reattach the ridgeline using a carabiner for this very purpose of sitting in it, lying on top, etc.

Did you see any change in your hammock after doing this? Is your HH the same shape, etc. after this modification?

Also, at times in the warmer months, I may want to sleep on top of the hammock and netting (without the ridgeline). Is this doable and comfortable?

Thanks for any comments.
