I have a 60x126 with whipped ends. I was thinking about doing something similar to the plans on DIY Gear Supply. http://www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com/w...etZippered.jpg
My netting is 54" wide, is this too wide, or will it just give me more wiggle room.
Several ways to do it and none of them are wrong.
The 54" wide netting is great for a hex shaped net. I find it tends to get a little floppy on the areas opposite your head and feet, unless the hammock is fitted with side tie-outs.
This design stretches the netting fairly tight. It does not require tie-outs to hold the netting away from you. I've also used it without a ridgeline, but careful attention is needed to prevent overstretching the net.
