    I don't have my RR out to look at it right now but I suspect that the length of the foot end spreader bar might be limited by the fabric at the 'top side' of the 'ditch'. You could shorten the bar,...

    Respectfully - I use a hammock to get off the ground, not necessarily for sleeping comfort. Not because the ground is hard but because of the lack of decent places to lay down. Too much tall and wet...

    I measure 43 inches wide at both ends, 29 inches in the center (material is hourglass shaped). However the foot end spreader bar is shorter than the head end spreader bar so, in use, the foot end...

    Yeah, I guess 'full hoop' is not the right term. I use poles to form an inner dome , half a circle, like shown in Shugs video. Sometimes I use two hoops spaced about 1/3 of the way in from the sides...

    I use a full hoop internal setup. I like it because it is so easy to go into porch mode by just adjusting two guy lines. No need for poles, sticks, or tying out to trees.

    I sold my Superfly and went with a 10 x 10 square tarp. It protects the hammock nicely and offers lots of options in pitching as a dining shelter or 'going to ground'.

    Well, I wasn't able to make this affair.
    Sounds like a good turnout.

    Would like to get a brief (or detailed) report. Is the lake large enough for paddling?

    The Clark 'Mark 2" comes close to being what you want. The tarp is separate but attaches to the hammock without additional lines. The hammock has to be hung first but only takes a minute or two.

    For a bridge hammock the tarp doesn't need as long a ridge line as you might with at GE. The hammock body itself is less than 7' on most bridges. With a smaller tarp the extra...
