I like having access to the ridgeline for storage.
Yes, you could, but the HUG may not be big enough to "hug" your hammock. The width of the HUG is the limiting factor since it is only 55 inches wide.
The shock cord does provide some strain relief.
All you would need to do is make the HUG a little wider. You could thread your ridge line through the pin hole (actually, I would punch in a grommet in that case; a toggle would seal the hole).
