Ridge lines are easy to install and don't impact a gathered end hammock at all, or shouldn't. At its most basic form, get a line and tie a loop on each end (figure-8 on a bight) so you have the distance set you want. Thread the suspension of your hammock through those loops on the ridge line and you're set.
You can make adjustable ridge lines or more elaborate ones, but that's the basic idea.
