I'll throw in a +1 on the width thing, I have some 2.2oz ripstop that is 68" wide after hemming and it makes a great hammock.
Thanks, craige! Yeah, if this came in 68", I would grab it really fast.
Just finished setting the ridgeline. 1 inch made a whole lot of difference. I started out with 102 and stopped at 103 - perfect for me.
Got the side pulls set. I used a pair of clamp on tarp pulls and slid them around until I found the sweet spot - each side is 14" from center or 28" on center. This is a right hand lay - head on left and feet on right.
Swapping ends is the same feel and lay. I notice this is very close to headchange4u's HH clone - he used 13" or 26" on center. I did try the 13", but liked the 14" better - YMMV!
Here's pics of the positioning and lay.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
