No problem. This is the place to get the info. I also noticed your hammock has spreader bars and you said you wanted to take it camping. Have you slept in it overnight? I ask because spreader bar hammocks while comfortable puts you in the curved position which can be hard on the knees.. A gathered end hammock with the person laying on a diagonal or a bridge hammock both give a flatter lie which is more conducive to all night sleep.
BTW, Shug is pronounced as if you are saying sugar (which is part of the origin of his nickname)
