    Only reason I quit using Whoopies was to get a shorter minimum hanging distance. Now its just straps and marlin spike hitch for me.

    Nice...i guess i can spend a few dollars and try out the partial turtle dog and use trees as the tie downs. If that works, i just need to figure out a solid anchor for use in the sand.
