absolutely. I sit in mine. Its a great way to face the fire and share comraderie with your buddies. I can also sit in mine using the end as a back support while I "snuggle up" with a good book. The Jacks' bridge is where I got the basic design, and with the help of Grizz and others you shouldnt have a problem making all the necessary cuts to the fabric. Mine is an hourglass shape with a parobola curve that is 40" on the end tapering to 34" in the middle (finished size after sewing channels)
good luck and god speed on your endeavors. and btw, welcome to HammockForums!
