Thanks headchange4u! I sewed the side tie outs last night without wating for your reply. The bug got me! I couldnt sleep without finishing this ***** hammock! I went to Tom hennesy's website instead and looked for specs and found nothing specific except for words like "just above the knee or just about your shoulder." So i did the most logical thing, i tied the hammock layed on it and marked the places were my shoulder and knee touched the hem. Voila! the result looked and felt good. In fact i slept on the hammock last night (minus the bugnet but with plenty of bug lotion) and it was roomy and flat compared to my speer/claytor clone. i will sew the zipper and experiment with the bugnet this pm. thanks for the tip
ps- my hammock end was fold/gathered hennesy asym style but with a difference. After gathering the ends it was folded and whipped like Jeff's. The support line goes through the fold and attached to the tree like claytors or crzy cribs. No need for the loop thingy because you can tie the ridgeline with a clove hitch and half hitches directly to the hammock support. the only downside is that you cant sew the zipper on like the hh. Im still experimenting but i think i have some ideas to try this pm. thanks!
