I sure appreciate the feedback and ideas. I knew going into this purchase that some of the appropriate size estimates and comfort are theoretical and subjective at best. Not sure where you would even find a 7'5" x 350 lb hammock camper to ask!
I hope this forum provides honest feedback especially for the vendors so they are able to use that feedback as "field research" to determine what opportunities may exist in the market place. The "cottage vendors" in particular have demonstrated their willingness to respond to market demand if they feel the opportunity outweighs the risk and can provide a return on investment.
I also think those contemplating hammock camping as an alternative to tents want an honest idea of what some of the drawbacks might be. It's all subjective and you can find reviews on the web of virtually any item (not just hammocks) that support almost any claim. Which ultimately translates to........"you pay your money and take your chances". Fortunately the first hand knowledge presented in this forum helps a lot with trying to sort fact from fiction, but requires a lot of research just to get informed enough to realize what is actually being said. My own experience when viewing other product reviews (ie: paddle sports) is the purchaser is primarily trying to justify their purchase in both their own mind and in the mind of those reading the review.
Thanks again for the help!!!!!!!!
