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.
Just starting out, so there is a lot of experimenting going on, but I do appear to be increasing sag to get the sides to relax a bit and get a flatter lay. A structural ridgeline in this scenario would appear to require a wider bugnet.
Something I don't know how to find here or elsewhere about gathered end hammock positions is about our assumption that the slopes of the curves of the hammock are symmetrical about the middle. Who says you have to hang the hammock centered between the supports? Hang it radically off-center and you can see opportunities for very different feel, as more of the hammock is one side, depending on which end is the head end. How our legs lay and how they load the hammock is a whole different thing from what our trunks and head do.
Is there an engineer in the house with software to model this. Or someone with a scale dummy for test hanging?
