    WHOOPIE!

    Did I attach this correctly?

    So I am trying to attach my RL (basically a long whoopie) to my hammock. I have an ENO singlenest gathered end with whoopie slings. I wasn't sure on how to attach the RL so I basically undid the whoopies at the hammock end see Picture 1 & 2. I then fed the whoopie slings through each end of the RL. (Pictures show running the whoopie through the fixed end, but I figured it would be the same for both ends.) The last 2 pictures show how it ended up. I'm wondering if this is sufficient enough to attach the RL as I know it does bear some of my weight. Also the RL is thinner than the whoopie slings as well. Is this right, or is there a better way? Will the thin RL eventually cut into the whoopie slings having the weight pulling on them, and being a thinner cord? Thanks for the help guys!! I couldn't find an exact diagram anywhere for this. (I'm sure there is more than one on here but damned if I could find it)

    Thanks!!! Seppish1

    looks good to me. It looks like you undid your whoopie fed your RL on and reattatched. Thats how mine is anyways.
