You know I've got to try this!
This is dead on IMO. I was trying for a smaller double layer hammock for winter use. On the shorter width hammock the channel drawcord has little effect With a wide hammock there is enough material to form a footbox of sorts when using the shock cord in channel. Medicineman's hammock was made to size for him. If he put shock cord in the side channel it would have had little effect in forming a footbox area.
