    It's an affliction of sailors... always looking at the lines of things.

    Never looking at ladies that way, mind you, only vessels, rigging and the like.

    I'm with you Mac. As a sailor getting things rigged all proper is important and part of that is clean lines.

    Knotty is right-the entry bungee has nothing to do with the perimeter bungee,they are separate.appearance is important to me and i could not be happier-the s/s looks like a perfect hammock now as it totally hides the Explorer inside without that bungled up bottom entry.downside--not a biggie but the s/s is actually a couple inches above the zipper and so you have to look for it-no big deal--that could also be due to my ridgeline repair which shortened the ridge a few inches--i slept in it last night and i think the shorter ridge actually makes it better for me to lay in-it may all be in my head but i think it takes the tightness from the old b/entry that always bothered my left knee

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Could well be. I had a similar experience, though if I shortened the RL when I cut it, it was not intentional. Anyway, I thought it got a tad more comfy.

    I believe shortening the ridgeline can cure the "cut-across-the-left-calf" syndrome. Wrote about discovering it here last March.
