    Use stainless hardware and don't skimp on the fender washers. Quite a bit of force is applied and the bolts tend to bend a bit over time. I've also teardrop mortised my upright with their supports. This is done by trimming a teardrop notch in the upright where a mirror cut end on the stanchion mates.

    the tension of the hammock lines keeps the joint in position without the need for a bolt in the joint- eliminating the issue of bent bolts being hard to pull and reinstall for takedown. Further weight applied in the hammock further solidifies the joint.
