This weekend at Hot Springs, there was talk about some kind of radial hammock stand that holds several hammocks. It reminded me of our discussion in this thread, based on the following sketch from Ashley's Book of Knots:

I made a 1"=1' scale model using 23" arrow sections, and little 9" hammocks hung 6" up each pole, 12" apart. Next step requires math, to figure out how short the poles can be without risking collapse.
Since it's a three hammock stand, I guess we need another cohort.
Anyone want to help us make one of these?
If it works, we'll have to do a road trip to Arizona for field testing.
