    ME either, I've looked at it a little, but really don't understand it.

    I cut the tie and retied the whoopie sling the exact same way that Hennessey attached the original line. Just leave one end in place so you have something to look at.

    I didn't use a dead eye on mine, either.

    Same here, I did the HH triple sheetbend & finished with a bowline.

    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.

    Me too, but I find the bowline to be kind of inelegant. May try to do the whole end working with a fixed eye.

    yes, I've got queued the task to mod my zipper-enabled HH Explorer with UCRs. My plan is to replicate the Hennessy wrap and then bury the remainder. Effectively a fixed eye all caught up in a Hennessy wrap.
