    I'm really liking that version Grizz!
    Does the zipper work fairly freely or do you sometimes need to use both hands to hold the fabric?
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    thanks Tim. The zipper is usually a one-handed affair. I remember once needing both hands because I think the zipper caught on something.

    Bridge layout

    That was some very interesting reading, I think I'm ready to try my 1st DIY bridge. I haven't ran a sewing machine since making that 7th grade pillow, so I'm a bit intimidated by the endcaps & bugnet attachment. I'm pretty confident I can cut & roll the parabolic line correctly and I'm wondering what can be planned into the main hammock body to ease the attachment of endcaps & bugnet. I like the built in endcaps that turkeyboy described and I'm trying to simplify it further. I'm wondering if a triangle piece can be left on each end of the main body with a small grommet in the apex to pass a ridgeline through. How do i figure the triangle dimensions before cutting? If I can get this to go straight up from the rings/spreader bar, I think the bug net could just be a rectangular tube with a zipper.

    I'm having trouble linking my uploaded pic to this post. The only picture in my gallery tries to illustrate this. Do my figures look like they'll produce a comfy lay? How do I determine the red triangle's dimensions?
