I'm thinking of making a whoopie sling for my suspension/ tarp tie outs. The part I dont fully understand is how one knows the buried length of both the fixed and adjustable ends. I plan on ordering 1/8 amsteel from Arrowhead equipment to make two lengths of 10'ish hammock suspension, one length of 120''ish for a structural ridge line, and ten 6'ish tarp tie outs. Can I use the same bury length for all of these and if so what length to should I use?
The length of the bury is computed from the rope diameter. Samson Ropes has details on splicing both the fixed eye and the whoopie sling. Both spell out the lengths recommended based on the "fid length" which is based on the rope diameter.
Google "samson rope" and look for their splicing directions.
