I figure 2000 lbs. weakened with a bowline will still be plenty strong for me.

    Unfortunately, it is just a singlenest. I will have to come up with a plan to handle the hypothetical swarm of women awed by my ingenuity.
    I think if you double the line up, you could double the rating.

I have pretty much figured out that there's no bouncy-bouncy to be done in a hammock. I would like to hear evidence (that someone heard from a friend, obviously) to the contrary.

    At least you won't bang your head on the headboard.

    Bouncy-bouncy, kind of like a waterbed with no water. Hmmm

    It's going to be a couple of weeks before I can go out and set it up. No trees where I live to hang from. I will definately bring a camera, just in case. I was waiting for HE to put lasers on the girls' heads in my dramatization drawing.
