Someone stole Alamosa's "boom stake" idea and they're available here: BOOM STAKES
- The original Banana Hammock
This is an old thread to be dug up, but here is a brainstorm (or hairbrain) idea. The holes in the nails could be 1/8", 3/32", or even 1/16" if thin enough cordage was used, possibly Amsteel. The two nails are lashed (or pinned) together in the center hole and a small section of string (or cable) is used to maintain the angle by holding the end holes a set distance apart. If the nail is strong enough to hold in the ground, is it also strong enough to the be the boom?
I have 12"x3/8" nails on order to try this out.
