You should be able to use a single tree at each end now..Also this would allow for you to simply use two bridge hammocks rather than making a new double or just design a double that can be separated somehow when needed.
I just noticed that this thread has been revived. Cool!
XTrekker, very good idea regarding your drawing. I actually made one that way, but it made excessive side to side rotation when I tested it.
I had an idea to compensate for this. I tried stabilizing the first spreader with webbing on each end of the first spreader, which was a ski pole. I attached one strap above and one below the primary the tree strap from each side. Upon testing this I immediately bent my ski pole. So, in my experience it didn't work. I once again turned back to trying to suspend the double hammock between three trees.
