Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
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?
