    Lines and cords

    Hi!

    My search for the materials for my first hammock and tarp continues...
    Right now I have decided for the fabrics for the tarp (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/R...ice::1195.html) and the hammock (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/R...-sqm::463.html), and even the bug net (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/M...ght::1565.html).

    So before I jump into the big lake of MYOG I need some guy lines and cord for the ridgeline. My idea is to go for the Gathered end hammock so nicely described by Knotty. I have still to decide how to do with the bug net, but I guess that will be a later problem Right now I'm thinking of getting a 5 mm polyester cord with a dyneema core (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/D...red::1483.html) for the hammock ridgeline and 4 mm reflecting polyester cord (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/T...-4mm::808.html) for the guy lines.

    Any comments for this? I will also need a ridgeline for the tarp, but it seems like a bit of a over kill to use the same cord as the ridgeline for hammock. But I don't know how strong the cord need to be, and that's why I post these questions for you...

    Another question that I'm still looking for the answer is how big a webbing you need for the guy lines. How strong does it need to be? 184 kg should be enough, shouldn't it? I found a polyamid webbing with this strength at 15 mm (http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/W...15mm::586.html).
