Hello all and let me begin by THANKING everyone for a magnificent forum.
Stayed up all night reading, I'm totally hooked!
Some words on my self.
I'm of to Thailand in April with my girlfriend and another couple for 1.5 months. Planing to visit some national marine parks that allow camping on islands. I have slept in a hammock for 3 weeks on a European trip one summer, around 2001. It was a cheap (120 Indian rupees = 2.58 U.S. dollars) hammock, but it served me good. Now inspired by the forum I WANNA MAKE ONE!
I don't understand fabrics or the strength of them.
Found this online here in Finland
"TEAR strength": min. 100N (ISO 4674 A1)
"PULL strength": min. 350 N/50mm (ISO 1421)
I have no idea what that means! (well, N=Newton, but still, clueless)
If someone knows, please help a n00b out
