I am playing around with using 1 40' piece of webbing for my straps. I am going to tie loop in it and hang the hammock of the loops. That will give me a about 16' of webbing on each side of the hammock. The downside is it is going to weigh more than a simple ridgeline.
don`t forget to take into account that the knots may reduce the strength of the webbing... according to how you do it. ...tim
