Cool. Pretty much what I did. I tested them out and after popping one of the lines on the buckle and replacing it they held up well. I guess the tensile strength of the first line I used wasn't so hot. At least I hadn't put all my weight in and didn't fall on my butt. The other stuff I had is much stiffer but is rated to 1K pounds I think. I played around adjusting everything and it is sooooo much faster. I didn't have any fear of falling while I was in the hammock.
I just have to figure out how to rig the snakeskins and I'll be set. I think I know what I need to do but it was already getting late.
