I'm thinking of repairing it and adding a second layer to slip the pad in between. I would use the holy layer as the outside, and the fresh hammock as the inside.
I understand your concerns. I'll do some research and look into the manufacturer's specs. I'll be making some tough choices.
Thanks for the help!
