    Newbie from Ontario Canada

    The first hammock I used was a WWII Canadian Navy Hammock

    This was a six foot long canvas hammock .
    The Navy Hammock had sixteen eyelets at each end .
    The suspension system was 8 nettles larks headed to a steel ring .
    This gives you the lines to tie to the eyelets .
    A lanyard was eye sliced to the steel ring . This Lanyard was passed over the Hammock bar returning through the steel ring & tied around the nettles .
    The hammock had spreader bars at the head & foot
    This Hammock was used on my Dad's Frigate in WWII .

    I now have a Hennessy Explorer & a MacCat tarp on order .

    Welcome to the club.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!

    Welcome Kilts

    I will agree with Bradley seems like you've jumped right into the lightweight gear with both feet.

    Post a picture of your MacCat and your Hammock when you get them. Bonus points are awarded with hammock shots showing snow in them.

    Cheers

    Brian
