I received my order of Amsteel from Redden last night and want to get going on making whoopie slings for both my Hennessey and my recently finished DIY gathered-end hammock(Thanks JustJeff!!), but I still have some questions even after viewing a bunch of videos and reading post here at HF.
My first question is what should the overall lengths of amsteel be for each of my hammocks? I know the Hennessey requires more than a gathered-end hammock, but at what length should I actually cut them at.
Question two, is there a layout or guide for measurements when making whoopie slings? Meaning, where or at what measurements should I be marking the amsteel for the fixed end and for the sliding end?
I am looking for something similar to what Opie had done in this thread showing all the measurements:
I know I am making more of this than I need to but I would prefer to gather as much info, do my layout, measure three times and then cut. I figure there is such a wealth of information here that I should try to utilize it.
Thanks for your help on this, I hope to get them made up tonight if possible.
