I had my first experience in a Skeeter Beeter pro this weekend. While attempting to adjust-try-adjust-try I put my left hand on the opposite side fabric as I swung in – yes, I know, BIG mistake. One moment I’m getting into the hammock, the next moment I’m face planted in the rocks under my hammock, with the netting under me. I now have two 2-inch holes in the no-see-um netting. And where the zipper attaches to the hammock, the zipper is ripped out about a foot, and the no-see-um is ripped for about a foot, starting right at the zipper.
Has anyone had luck sewing patches of no-see-um over holes in the netting? I found places online to order a yard of the no-see-um, but now sure exactly how one would sew it. Or should I just get small pieces of parachute-like fabric, and sew an inside-outside piece over the holes and rips, and let it go at that?
