    Hi creativeKayt - watched the video - great fun! I had a quick question. I grabbed some mason's line from HD a while back - Lehigh in pink - but i find that the braid is way too tight for any splicing. Mind if I ask what type you are using?

    Sure. It's the "MARSHALL TOWN Premier Line 500 ft. Florescent Yellow Braided Mason's Line." You can get it to squish inward and loosen up a lot.

    Big NOOB, here...

    This is actually my first post...

    Anyway, some friends used hammocks at a big camping get together we had last Fall and I was smitten. Read Speer's book and then bought a sewing machine.

    Long story short, found this site a few days ago and the threads have been invaluable. Earlier today I finished my sixth hammock (me, wife and four boys...) and started trying to sort our the rigging. While searching for whoopie sling info I found this thread! Perfect. This evening I tied six sets of slings with the Amsteel that came in yesterday! Just watched creativeKayt's video and know how I'll be doing my tarp tie-downs.

    Just have to settle on a design for the tarps and I'll start sewing them!!

    Thanks again!!
