Alamosa and everybody that contributed to this posting over time,,a big ,,as I pulled this up last nite, and made one and will hang in it tonite testing it all out,,works like a charm. I didn't have enough amsteel so testing out 250lb glow wire of Lawsons and it held the wife perfectly as I adjusted everything. Will order some amsteel asap tho as I want alittle more pounds of strength in my tie downs to the booms. This is a great way to hang a hammock without trees available. I made my first outfit with 1" conduit, and will get a piece of 1 1/4 dia to nest the 2 setups for me and the wife with everything in each piece of larger dia conduit. I made my set 5' tall and the spread to hang the hammock was 13' in length. Thanks again everybody for a very niffty idea on how to hang without trees.
