    Thumbs up Just finished my whoopies!

    My Amsteel came in today. Thank you Redden Marine Supply for the discount and awesome service! I bought 50' of 1/8"(some say overkill, I say not). I bought the black cause it matches. So, I started with 16' of Amsteel per whoopie(more is better, right?) and used the rest to replace the ridgeline on the HH Explorer. I know, I know. But I like strength. I had about 3' left over.
    I wanted to give a thanks to Opie for his pictorial on the locked brummel. And a thanks to Ken on his video on the HH to Whoopie conversion. Y'all made it very easy for me.
    So, I strung it up in the living room and bounced around in it a little to settle everything and to prove it before taking it out. It worked like a charm! Thanks again HF!

    I am proud for sure. Not only did I shave off a ***tload of weight, but now I can roll it into a single layer in the stuff sack. That's a 2"x9"x12" saving of space!
