My amsteel will be arriving soon, so I've been reading everything I can find on making my whoopies. Does it matter what method I use to make the fixed eye?
I plan to use a locked Brummel, as it looks relatively easy, and I hate sewing. Is it best to do the loop and bury after attaching the sling to the Hennessey? I'd like to end up with the bury very close to the hammock.
I'd like the option to still use the stock tarp attached to the sling. Is anyone doing this? Does the bury get in the way of attaching a prussik to the amsteel (with a few extra loops)?
Is 15 feet too long to start with? No point in wasting Amsteel.
