CrackerJack - Worked like a charm! You're a legend. Thanks so much.
I haven't been able to access Dutch's website for a while. I thought it was just his website playing up on me every time i've had the itch.
I've tried using with and without the "www" - No luck....
How did you get on? End up building?
Have you seen GravityOutdoors post?.
I'm considering building this now.... Thinking I might do it "Karo style" though.
I'm mid making a primaloft quilts (both Underquilt and Top quilt x a few) I have a 45yd roll of it.
I found the KAQ plans a while ago and all the great tips for sewing Primaloft and quilting loops...
Bump, Good question! I haven't found any in my hunts. but there can't be much to it huh?
I'm looking for alternatives also.... I wanna see an option with a small hole you could thread some type of...

Hey Paul. I finally managed to purchase some of these poles from REI. You don't need to add anything to use the tip of the hiking pole? Could you share a photo?
Welcome EasyGoer. There are a few of us Kiwi's here. I'm from Tokoroa myself. There are a few in Auckland and a few near Wanganui area.
Welcome to the madness.
Great!....... another thing I don't need, but need.
The double hook looks moustachey. The bridge moustache.... For the inner-gentlemen-hanger within.
Or Sideshow Bob...
Haha. Just what I was waiting on. Thanks Dutch and all the hammock elves.
Dat 4th photo....... You're a mad detail-guy.
Hey Kestrel, I know this is an old post but do you have an update on your "Thermo" quilt or did you bin the idea altogether? I'm broke and looking into the idea.
Says "SS" (stainless steel I think) in Original post.
After building the 9ft and 8ft (and failing the 10ft) I'm happy with the smaller 8ft hammock.
I heard Brandon mention the closer footbox on his xlc intro video. Sounds interesting. After seeing...
15' hammock stand? Plenty of room to hang a WBBB.
You don't need the support pole on the top... the pole down the bottom should be all the support you need. It's rated to 450lbs too. Reading a few...
The 2 options for UQP are breathable and Waterproof.
Calendered or uncalendered - irrelevant. DWR - not necessary but a good option.
Most people i've found here (me included) prefer breathable...
Thanks for responding, Alogonquin_bound.
I went ahead and built the 9ft but it's too big for my 5'11" frame I think. I have to choose between shelf access or foot box comfort. I can't comfortably...
You must have some super patience there. Total professional job. What type of sewing foot did you use?
I see you're using the tato door clips from the door to the corner tie out. Tried...
Hey guys. There are a few gaps in the plans. Maybe i'm having a brain fart but I just can't work it out.
Other than the 2 OP guides is there a full "how-to" somewhere specifically for this one? I've...
I used a DIY rolled hem and grosgrain hem foot for about 6 months. Now have been using commercial types for the last 8months or so. They both have there advantages and disadvantages. I'll point out...
You've been the busiest lurker I'm aware of.
Your WBBB (Warbonnet Blackbird) clone looks pro!
Can't update the original post.

You missed out on AHE's 25year anniversary sale 1 of their quilts were 25% off and $75. They're...
I'm sure you've already figured it out but it'd be a piece of cake to recycle your Eno Double Nest.... Pull out the ends unstitch it and it's just fabric.
You won't need all of the fabric though.
According to the JRB link in the original post. "It fit's individuals up to 6'3"" or 190cm's you'd be snug but not overly so.
Woohoo, thanks for sharing Fancy Ramen. Gotta love a good deal.
umm, thanks for sharing your feelings too?! I prefer chicken over beef. lol
Looks genius dude. Hope the aluminium holds up. Looks awesome.
If you're looking for clean stand You could also try a "rabbit ear stand" (search forums for thread discussion) by drilling holes into your deck at 45deg putting in 2 rail posts with eye bolts at the...
this made me laugh more than it should have.... haha
I have grommets in the corners and twigs I pick up on the trail to pin down the corners. Rocks work, I made small pockets on the corner to hold the rocks in place.
Sometimes I just use the weight of...
Found ridgeline info from the guy who kinda started it, Lostbiker.

I normally wouldn't leave anything out in the open unless I was in watching distance. Sometimes when I'm going a bit further off I make a noisy trip wire with my Ti pot/pegs. Now I use a rape alarm...
So how much water am to bring to wash my hands for 24 seconds every time I need to wash up?
+1 on the sterile comment. I say just wash up when you need to eat and after you fertilize the...
I don't use shockcord on my cuban to keep it taut, I use shock cord to give it a little give in the wind. Piece of mind for such an expensive piece of equipment.
Was just about to ask this. This should by default be set to auto.
Seen this post from Jacob Conroy? havent seen a picture yet but sounds like he's up to the same thing.
Consensus seems that it's not hard to ship internationally at all, but it's just so easy to ship within why bother with the extra minute of paperwork. Annoying that your so close though.
The trees I hang on are generally the size of my thigh. Those trees are beautiful.
I still would love to see a video of someone putting 25' - 50' treestraps on to review hammock or hardware.
Thanks gunner76, I've made one of each of those. They work great!
BackPacker, any curve depths for main and door?
What's the distance from
Ridgeline to bottom of door?
Thanks in advance.
Hi guys, first things first. I'm broke folks.
I want a superfly... and I will end up buying one but until and I get rid of all the sil-nylon I have on tap and I get employment... DIY is all I can...
Can you take a photo?
Thanks for taking the time to make an entertaining easy watch.
Oh i wasn't aware of others having trouble with it. I use a soldering iron used for circuit boards. Not sure of what type of metal though.. No brand. Similar to: ...
Overkill. I use a 30w soldiering iron. It cuts ripstop as fast as you can flick snot or as fast as you can draw a pencil line - which ever analogy works best. If it's a soldering iron, and can fuse...
Wow, that's a rare movie I thought no one but me and my wife knew....... One of our favourites.
No apology required.
Would you consider shipping international?
All time favorite DIY hammock = Grizz Bridge.
Why? It's so nice to make. Comfortable and as light as you wanna make it.
This is a photo of it pre bug net....
Whoopie clip = Whoopie hook? If it is it's made for 7/64.... And it's a snug fit. Not sure it would fit.
You're not paranoid. Just extra extra extra safe.
