He sold that rig, and it's popped up a couple of times in the For Sale forum, even recently.
b) I too have made a bridge where the spreader is moved down the body a foot or so to get the spread where you want it---over your shoulders. Really works. It is a bit more awkward getting in and out, sitting up. Would take a special kind of hackery to do that to a BMBH.
c) You might see how the BMBH works out for you sleeping on your side. You aren't up against the hammock sides that way.
