Im looking to build a bridge hammock for my girlfriend along with possibly one for myself down the line. I have copied some measurements from various areas and I hope I'm not getting confused. After my tarp blunder I have learned my lesson and am asking for a double check before I begin.
Basically I want to build a hammock using Grizz's dimensions. The issue I am having is while his dimensions work for me. My girlfriend wants a shorter variation. I also want to further complicate madders by adding in Hangnout's end caps as they seem to be the easiest to construct.
I know shorter bridge hammocks have been made (2sticks hammock for example) I would really like some input on what dimensions for some one 5'2". I was thinking shortening the hammock body down to 5.5" for her. My question comes with the rest of the dimensions. Do I need to scale back the width, spreader bar length and cat cut to make it have a similar lie?
Will mule tape work for the webbing in the sides of the hammock?
Thanks for your assistance,
