Adding a structural ridge-line to the Claytor wouldn't be that hard. However, you would also need a non-structural ridge-line for the netting, or some type of loops in the tarp to attach it to. Or maybe the netting would just lie on the ridge-line, but it seems to me it would have too much sag for that, maybe not.
Here is a picture showing how the ridge-line works. The supportd are tight but the body of the hammock has just the right sag for me.
The second picture shows how I attach it to my hammock. I call it "through the whip suspension". I just make a loop and attach the ridge-line to that. I use 550 cord for my ridge-line, it's a little stretchy, but once I get it right it is good.
