    Need Constructive Criticism

    Hi Gang! I'm a newbie at hammocking, and just received my OES MacCat Deluxe (silnylon) with a single panel pull-out on each side and sewn-on doors by 2QZQ (both highly recommended!)...I've enclosed some photos of my first official hang with it (used a continual ridge line), and would like some constructive criticism.

    A couple of questions:

    1) How long should the "drip line" for rain water runoff be (see extra orange line in pic)?
    2) I'm taking this tarp on an AT thru-hike next year: since I'm new to this, is it best to just stick with the stock webbing or is it lighter/less fiddle factor to go tree huggers-whoopie slings?
    3) (Adding to #2) Is it lighter/less fiddle factor to use a continual ridge line or two separate lines?
