The only problems I had were the sides were too "floppy", and there was a lot of pressure under my legs (calf area). So today, I uninjected the roll, and cut the corners. I measured down the length of the hammock about 2". I measures across the hammock about 6" and cut the triangle off. Injected it back up, was a little bit of a pain around the "corner" of the triangle, but worked out. After tieing the gather again you couldn't I couldn't see anything different from the first time. Hung it real quick to test and it felt a lot better. No pressure on the legs and not so floppy. Will have to test better at a later time to make sure.
I see, so you have about 48" in the center that is straight and the 6" on each side are tapered/angled. I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking from each side to the center but I see what you are saying about the pressure and shoulder squishing. I think I will give your method a try. Thanks.
