As noted it will excel on the WBBB, either as a 7/11th or full size with the
With the HH it will also work very well in either mode...When a 7/77 the
slit is exposed so no problem, as routine for fractional length quilts use a
pad for the legs.
The two sections are easily joined by omni tape...It is done before the uq
is attached to the hammock... It is not practical to join the sections from
inside the hammock.
It is an attach and get it right, very easy, once, then set for a long
time...As you say, "bombproof"
To enter the HH simply walk up to the foot end from the right, with left
hand gently push the UQ down and to the left, enter normally, the UQ will
snap in place automatically...Exit by reverse.

with all the available info it can be said that i am a happy camper.
i just ordered my mw3c. thanks again! i'll try your mod
Great minds work alike...My old one is just slower...
I was just clipping that email to add it to the thread...Glad I saw your post of the same.
One note to add...
Beast's use of an elastic to keep the diagonal alignment on the WBBB is a common fix...It is not one that I'm personally fond of because with time it will wear or stresss the bugnet between the friction of the ridgeline and the elastic...And the more one moves in the hammock the faster wear will appear...
Alternatively, reflect on the difference of the WBBB and the HH... Because of the HH patent the WBBB has an ENO type bottom and the tie outs are on the bugnet above, if in use...Thus there are no WBBB tieouts to attach the JRB ladder loops, as in the case of the HH asyms....Far better, IMHO, to add large buttons to the edge seam of the WBBB at the points that correspond to the right knee and left shoulder side ladder loops of a JRB UQ...Wholla, perfect HH style alignment...Never any further adjustment necessary...
We all can sew on buttons, right?
