    Big burn hole in warbonnet 1.0 double

    So I have a big burn hole in my warbonnet 1.0 double from a friend stupidly smoking a cigar in my hammock, it's right on the seam where the bugnet meets the hammock fabric was wondering what would be the best way to fix this?

    If it was mine, I would expect him to replace the Hammock, especially if you had of warned him before hand. People should account for there stupidity, why should you be the one that pays for it?

    I say you fix it by making him buy you a new hammock. That being said. I'd just patch it with rip stop and seal it maybe with some seal net so it doesn't frey. If you're not confident in fixing it maybe try selling it cheap to someone who is then he won't have to pay you as much to buy a new one.

    it looks like it's mostly on the netting. at least in that picture. i'd just patch it with ripstop and silnet as theuprising suggested. bummer man, but i know stuff happens sometimes.

    I wouldn't patch it. The netting is flexible enough to fill this space. Get a needle and black polyester thread and sew it up. It'll leave a wrinkle, but it shouldn't be a big deal.

    If you aren't able to sell it to your stogie-smoking friend, I'd get a small piece of netting a little bigger than the hole and sew (thread inject) it in place. Then I would seam seal around the perimeter.

    Exactly what I was going to say when I read the original post. If I ever damaged someone else's gear I'd off to pay any repair related expenses. I think it would do better wtih a bugnet patch.

    +1 toall the posts saying have actions be accounted for

    not saying hes a bad friend.....until he doesnt acount for his actions.

    if it was reversed (not saying you would ever blaspheme and burn a hammock) but what would he expect you to do? that simple. reverse the shoes and usually it becomes fair

    some times the most important lessons are the expensive ones.

    that being said, im sorry for your hammock.
