    You can make a slapstrap of sorts out of the Hennessy line itself. Just tie one half of a fisherman's knot up near the hammock, then feed the end of the hammock line through the knot and finish the fishermans knot, completing a large loop. Then tie figure-eight knots at 6in intervals. This will shorten your hammock line by about 60%, get some more spectra and tie a sling to make up the length.

    Hey, found some webbing at Wally's world! Except, it doesn't say what it's made of... and it's in a package.
    Doesn't look like nylon, but I'm not gonna chance that.

    Johnny, a double fisherman's knot is nearly a 100% strength knot (that is why fisherman use them for leaders) and the figure-eight has about a 75-80% knot strength ( do not use an overhand knot, it is a lot weaker). Remember, you are doubling most of the rope also.
