the pull outs would definitely make a difference.
in this picture you can see that i would have liked to have had mine both lower & farther apart.
i like the spacious effect of the pull outs so much that i am thinking i will add another seam from end to end w/ several grosgrain tabs so i will have a choice in how far apart i used the pull outs.
also, the pull out tabs act as stabilizers in high wind.
the extra seam you see in the picture (about 12" from the bottom edge) is for attaching a side wall.
that may be something that would work well w/ the bridge hammock.
