So I am horrible at math but I will give it my best. If any one sees a miss calculation in my bury length or anywhere else please correct me. However this is what I've been using on all four of my hammocks without any incidents and have all held together.
I use a starting length of dynaglide at lets say 34". I fold that in half giving me 17" on each side. I use apx. 5 inches for the dead eye (give or take a few inches) and use apx. 10" for the bury which should be enough of a bury for dynaglide and about 2" of tapering. So when all is said and done you figure the final length is apx. 17"-19" due to the cord used for the locked Brummel and the shortening of the the dynaglide when it is spliced inside of it self. That has given me plenty of cordage to run through the channel end of a WBBB and whip it together with no problems. Their is a calculation for how much cord shrinks when buried I just don't know it. Hope this helped.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
