Excellent. Will you be using the stretch-side method for the footbox?

I added the 'stretch sides mod' and I can see where that will help hold a quilt in, but even with the stretch side on my "head side" it doesn't keep the material from falling in my face. Even lying on the diagonal I can cover up like a burrito.
So I've been playing with some different whip styles and none have helped. Is this hammock just too big for me (I'm 5'6"). Right now I have a love / hate relationship with this thing.
Any advice on this one?
One of the downsides of large hammocks, especially if you're not tall. WV has pioneered a variation of the stretch-side where he runs a bungee the entire length of the hem. That might be your answer.
