    How long for a HH whoopie

    I'm fixing to make whoopies for an HH Expedition, and was wonder how long I should make them.

    Should I just double the adjustable range that I want?

    peace

    To add to what pedro said, you should add about another foot for the fixed eye and the buries. If you start with 13' you should end up with a little more than a 6' sling.
